This self-authored and picture-heavy (469 color ilustrations) catalog to a recent eponymous exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris presents a sundry of peculiar artistic work by Lynch, who is probably more famous for his films (e.g., Blue Velvetand Eraserhead). Even so, it offers up a rare opportunity to explore his curious multidisciplinary talents: e.g., painting, photography, sculpture, and furniture. The minimal text precludes the need for a table of contents or an index. That said, transcribed among the artwork are a conversation on Lynch's art between philosopher Boris Groys and filmmaker Andrei Ujica and an interview with the artist by journalist Kristine McKenna. Those who really can't be bothered to read this text can instead insert the two accompanying CDs and listen to the conversations while contemplating Lynch's artwork-which, by the way, may be considered by some a bit too risqué for younger audiences. Recommended for special libraries with a contemporary art and/or film studies focus.
