Rodney Graham by Tacita Dean



Sale 40% off

The art by the Canadian Rodney Graham may come across as light-footed, yet in reality it harbours an extraordinary complexity in terms of content and its use of media. His photographs, objects, paintings, films, texts, and compositions contain references to philosophy and literature, to the history of art and culture, that range from Erasmus of Rotterdam and Edgar Allan Poe to Sigmund Freud, Richard Wagner, and Kurt Cobain. While in his early oeuvre he still approaches his sources of material with a great deal of conceptual rigor, in their playful ambivalence between scientific factuality and imaginative fiction his later works are marked primarily by an enormous and intelligent sense of humour.
