Overview

Paul McCarthy's architectural installations—incorporating video and performance artifacts—have received copious critical and curatorial attention during the past decade, and his work has had a tremendous impact on two generations of Los Angeles artists, as well as artists throughout the world. This coffee table-size monograph reveals numerous perspectives on McCarthy's recent installations at the new "Lokremise laboratory" in St. Galen, Switzerland, presented using an innovatively designed collage method with detailed notation. Among the highlights are McCarthy's "mechanized" Swiss chalet, his "Bossy Burger" performance video—featuring a reconfigured sitcom set—and "The Box," which presents the artist's complete studio interior tilted by ninety degrees. And no one should miss out on McCarthy's Michael Jackson sculptures and his scatological "Santa Chocolate Shop." As editor Eva Meyer-Hermann puts it in her introduction: "It was no accident that the first artist featured at the Lokremise laboratory was Paul McCarthy. His works are experiments in perspective-shifting; change and development are inbuilt."

Author Biography: Paul McCarthy was born in 1945 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and he currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the University of Southern California.
