ALLAN WEXLER: ABSURD THINKING -- BETWEEN ART AND DESIGN. Ed. by Ashley Simone. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2017. 296 pp. with 413 ills. (363 col.). 29 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783037785164 In English.
Publisher's description: This book features projects, developed during the artist Allan Wexler's forty-year career, which mediate the gap between fine and applied art using the mediums of architecture, sculpture, photography, painting, and drawing. His production can be broadly described as tactile poetry composed by re-framing the ordinary with the intention of sustaining a narrative about landscape, nature, and the built environment that highlights the intriguing and surprising characteristics latent in the elements and rituals that pervade daily life. His work demonstrates a commitment to re-evaluating basic assumptions about our relationship to the built and natural environments. This publication is a richly illustrated cross section of Wexler's multi-scale, multi-media work featuring his own writings, narratives and reflections, and features critical contributions by various experts.
