Publisher's description: Dutch visual and film artist Gabriel Lester's (b. 1972) prolific adventures and art practice over the past 15 years are illustrated in this sumptuously illustrated second monograph. Arranged alphabetically, his most prominent installations, interventions, sculptures and films are presented alongside documentation of their construction and installation. The pairing provides insight into the teamwork and organization behind each project and demonstrates the inherent performativity and narrative element underlying all of Lester's work. Designed by acclaimed graphic designer Irma Boom, with essays by Portikus director Philippe Pirotte, Artforum editor and art historian Lee Ambrozy and historian and critic Vivian Sky Rehberg. Internationally exhibited and collected by PS1, NY, Centre Georges Pompidou and the Stedelijk Museum, among others. Atmospheric and perceptual, many of Lester's architecturally experimental works involve a discourse on time and space and evolve around the nature of media of our time.
