Description

A fully updated and expanded edition of the artist's first comprehensive monograph, more than a decade since its original publication

Francis Alys examines the patterns of various urban sites before weaving his own fables into their tangled social fabric with wit, sensitivity, and an acutely personal connection to his subject matter. A scene such as a Volkswagen Beetle struggling up a hill or a man pushing a block of ice can carry a message that resonates far beyond the work's simple parameters. As Alys puts it, 'Sometimes doing something poetic can become political, and sometimes doing something political can become poetic.'
