Book Description
Known for - and even overshadowed by - his brutal and spectacular building cuts, Gordon Matta-Clark`s ceuvre is unique in the history of American art. Working in the 1970s on the borders between art and architecture, Matta-Clark`s diverse practice is often understand as an outright rejection of the tenets of modernism. Arguing instead for the artist`s ambivalent relationship with architectural heritage he is all too often claimed to disavow, this is first book to extrapolate Matta-Clark`s thinking beyond its immediate context. Stephen Walker considers the broad range of Matta-Clark`s ephemeral practice, from montage to actual interventions and from performance art and installation to drawing, film and video. Bringing to the fore the consistent themes and issues explored through his broad range of media, and in particular the complex notion of the `discreet violation`, Walker reveals the continued relevance of Matta-Clark`s artistic and theoretical ceuvre to the reception of artistic and architectural work today.
