Description - Douglas Gordon by National Galleries of Scotland

This book will accompany the first major solo exhibition of Douglas Gordon's work in Scotland since he presented his now celebrated work, 24 Hour Psycho at Tramway in Glasgow in 1993. Gordon is one of a number of Glasgow-trained artists who came to prominence in the 1990s. He has gone on to achieve huge international recognition, marked by major awards, including the Turner Prize in 1996, and by exhibitions in museums in Europe and America. Gordon works with film, video, photographs, objects and texts, examining issues such as memory and identity, good and evil, life and death. He makes great play with the doubling of images often in positive and negative or in mirrored form. This book will show all the important aspects of Gordon's work, both past and present. In addition, it will be specially tailored to bring out the particularly Scottish nature of Gordon's ideas and practice. Includes a short story by the renowned Scottish author, Ian Rankin and essays from Keith Hartley and Michael Fried Size: 245 x 165 mm 128 pp 65 col.illustrations
