Published by Downtown Arts Projects
Artist Sue de Beer has cited Proust's influence on her oeuvre, particularly the great author's work The Captive, which in achingly beautiful prose recounts a young man's quest to comprehend the object of his amorous obsession. This first installment in the Emerging Artists Book Series, by New York's Downtown Arts Projects, captures the heart of de Beer's work, in which photographs, video stills and installation shots convey expressions of time and memory. Extensive full-color as well as black-and-white illustrations are paired with thematic essays by contemporary writers and curators, in addition to early critical writings. This volume is an exciting debut in a series that promises to champion the finest emerging visual artists appearing in the United States today.
