Ashley Bickerton

Regular price Regular price $375

This richly illustrated and uniquely designed monograph documents Ashley Bickerton’s life and practice in dazzling and unprecedented detail and visual style. From his knowingly impersonal “self-portraits,” “still lives” and “consumerist” constructions of the mid-1980s to the ornate, handcrafted paintings and sculptures that he has been producing since relocating to the Indonesian island of Bali in the early 1990s, this exhaustive volume reveals Bickerton as having explored aspects of cultural dislocation through a dizzying variety of modes and methods.

Bickerton’s own commentary is interwoven with essays by artist Jake Chapman, novelist Nick McDonell, art historian Abigail Solomon-Godeau, curator Dominic Molon, and the artist’s father, linguist-anthropologist Derek Bickerton. Also included is an interview with Bickerton conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, presented as a comic novel with illustrations by Ignacio Noé.
