A highly acclaimed and extremely prolific artist, Bruce Nauman (b. 1941) has been active since the early 1970s. Working in mediums such as sculpture, video, film, installation, performance, and printmaking, he shies away from developing a single characteristic style.
His work toys with text and fragmented images of the human body. Often provocative in nature, he connects physical realities of violence, sex, and death with visceral, spiritual messages, like an early neon sign proclaiming, the true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths. On top of many achievements in his career, Nauman recently represented the United States at the 2009 Venice Biennale and was awarded the Golden Lion prize for best national pavilion.
This book accompanies Nauman's 2015 exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain that brings together some of his latest projects.
