Publication Date 2005
Description Pierre Bismuth, Oscar-winning screenwriter and video artist, is making conceptual art more approachable for the general public. Bismuth uses the power of language and image to morph rational ideas into absurd situations, and vice versa. Drawing from art history and cultural references - from fashion to cinema - Bismuth uses all art mediums available, from origami and collage to screenwriting and art installations. Bismuth has exhibited his work extensively throughout Europe and North America, including solo exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum Thun in Basel, Switzerland in April 2005, the Witte de With Museum of Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, the Sprengel Museum in Hannover, Germany, and at the 49th Venice Biennial. Bismuth is the first contemporary artist to win an academy award, which he received for co-authoring the 2004 Oscar-winning Best Original Screenplay, "Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind". This volume charts the artist's development through an analytical text, a visual gallery of works and an interview by a renowned art critic. A through and insightful reference, it provides a portrait of Bismuth's past and present work, and many of his works are assembled together for the first time.
