Overview

Video and installation artist Pierre Bismuth uses the play between language and image to morph rational ideas into absurd situations, and vice versa. This volume charts the artist's development with a retrospective text, an interview, an analytical essay, and 150 illustrations. Bismuth has exhibited his work extensively throughout Europe and North America. At his solo exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Thun in Switzerland in April 2005, he presented old and new works, including the first part of an ongoing collaboration with Michael Gondry entitled "The All Seeing Eye (The Easy Teenage Version)".Bismuth is the first contemporary artist to receive an academy award for coauthoring the 2004 Oscar-winning Best Original Screenplay Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind.
