Scope and Contents

Book Description (Amazon): Since the early 1990s, Sean Landers has made some of the most fascinating and repeatedly irritating art in circulation. The polar opposites of tormented self-doubt and endless self-aggrandizement run like threads through the artist's practice, as do several masks of failure that Landers uses as a strategy to preserve himself from impending loser-status. As the artist puts it, "My original idea was to make conceptual art entertaining, sloppy, emotional, human, and funny. Over the years I got so far out on this conceptual limb that I went around full circle until I was a traditional artist again. I tried to be ironic about it but eventually became sincere. Now I'm a happy victim of my own charade." This monograph presents an overview of Lander's oeuvre and includes works from 1992 to the present. Edited by Beatrix Ruf. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
