Abstract
 
Description
This comprehensive new monograph on the influential British artist-filmmaker John Smith renowned for his playful and formally ingenious subversion of the everyday world contains essays by Ian Christie, Martin Herbert, Kathrin Meyer and Ethan de Seife. Herbert s text provides an incisive overview of Smith s work over the past four decades, while Christie examines the artist s oeuvre within the context of English eccentricity. Meyer s essay discusses his film The Black Tower in relation to absence and abstraction and de Seife looks at cinematic scale through the prism of Smith s Gargantuan. The publication includes a complete, fully illustrated filmography, with images and synopses from nearly 50 film and video works created between 1972 and 2012, also making it an important document of British conceptual filmmaking.Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin; Mousse Publishing, Milan - from Amzon
