Description - Fabrice Samyn: I Am? by Vinciane Despret
The first major monograph on the work of contemporary Belgian artist Fabrice Samyn
Contemporary Belgian artist Fabrice Samyn (b. 1981) works in a wide variety of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, installation, and recently choreography. His art engages with history and the passage of time, raising important questions about representation, idolatry, iconoclasm, and ecology in our contemporary world. In the artist's own words, "My work attempts to reveal time, or rather natural phenomena of time (erosion for example) as creative." One of his best-known series, "Sinai" (2010), features photographic images of the necks of Greek sculptures, cropped and lit in such a way that they become abstract landscapes. This book is the first to offer an in-depth exploration of the full scope of Samyn's oeuvre. Copiously illustrated, the book also includes penetrating essays by prominent European philosophers and art historians.
