Anna Lucas

£4.99

Product description

Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the FACT gallery in Liverpool, Anna Lucas: Here and You're Here examines the work of one of the most exciting-and unpredictable-exponents of video art. A distinct ability to transform seemingly unspectacular moments into those of epic profundity, an astute awareness of the political nature of film and video, and an ability to master carefully orchestrated soundscapes position Anna Lucas as one of the most versatile and significant artists working with the moving image today. The new body of work commissioned for this volume and exhibition explores the social scientific, and spiritual subcultures surrounding a number of exotic plants traded in Brixton Markets-and traces back to their countries of origin. Filmed during a period of political unrest, increasing scientific discovery, and ecological awareness, Lucas's work is a timely investigation into the hidden significance of local knowledge against a backdrop of global concern. This fully illustrated volume provides a critical study of this truly international artist, social commentator, and cinematic visionary.
