Do it : the compendium by Bruce Altshuler( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, 'Do It' began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier and Obrist himself, who was experimenting with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. The discussion led to the question of whether a show could take "scores" or written instructions by artists as a point of departure, which could be interpreted anew each time they were enacted. To test the idea, Obrist invited 13 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into nine different languages and circulated internationally as a book. Within two years, 'Do It' exhibitions were being created all over the world by realizing the artists' instructions. With every version of the exhibition new instructions were added, so that today more than 300 artists have contributed to the project

Christian Boltanski by Catherine Grenier( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three distinct perspectives on Boltanski and his work: an analytical essay, a personal interview, and a complete retrospective of his work to date. Christian Boltanski--internationally acclaimed photographer, sculptor, painter, and installation artist--tackles the problems of death, memory, and loss in his art that draws heavily from his own life. Boltanski's art can be either dark and disturbing or playful, and sometimes both at once. This monograph examines every aspect of his art, from his unusual choice of materials--newspaper clippings, used clothes, photographs of photographs--to the spirits that haunt his work. One of his most successful exhibitions, "Lessons in Darkness" (1988), explored the personal pathos of the Holocaust in a shocking new way. The author worked closely with the artist to produce a strong, visual work that provides a clear picture of the creative development of a major artist working today. Fully illustrated, the book includes an introductory portfolio of key installations, first hand interviews with the artist, analyses of the significance of individual works, and a full chronology and bibliography."--Publisher's website

Christian Boltanski by Catherine Grenier( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Né à Paris en 1944, Christian Boltanski sait, dès l'âge de treize ans, qu'il sera artiste.¦Aujourd'hui, il est l'une des figures incontournables de l'histoire de l'art contemporaine français et international, auteur d'une oeuvre de référence qui a su toucher un large public. Depuis la fin des années soixante, sa pratique artistique polymorphe traite d'une manière singulière des thèmes de l'enfance, de l'identité, de la mort, des archives et du temps. A partir d'un vocabulaire formel reconnaissable et de matériaux simples (photographies, archives, vêtements), il met en scène la rencontre entre mémoire personnelle et mémoire collective, faisant notamment revivre le souvenir des tragédies du XXe siècle.¦Se déployant des arts plastiques aux spectacles, son oeuvre offre une réflexion sur le statut de l'image, du témoignage et de l'art. Du premier atelier sous les combles, jusqu'aux plus grands musées et aux lieux les plus insolites, quarante années de création sont ici présentées, retraçant le parcours d'un artiste profondément humain et humaniste. ¦

Boltanski : catalogue by Christian Boltanski( Book )

13 editions published in 1984 in French and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si l'œuvre de Christian Boltanski appartient au registre le plus contemporain de l'expression plastique par la multitude des matériaux employés, la pâte à modeler, le carton ondulé, la photographie ou des objets trouvés, l'artiste revendique néanmoins une filiation avec la peinture traditionnelle qu'il a pratiquée à ses débuts. Selon lui, la peinture se caractérise non pas par l'habileté de la main, mais par sa vocation religieuse et son pouvoir sacré. C'est dans ce sens que toute l'œuvre de Boltanski peut être perçue comme la continuité de la tradition picturale : en tant qu'elle interroge la religiosité de l'art
