Mark Dion: Concerning HuntingMark Dion: Concerning Hunting

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Dieter Buchhart.

For more than 20 years, American artist Mark Dion has had archive fever. Organized according to a quirky system of categorization, his tableaux of dusty collections consist of stuffed bears, tarred birds and scientific tools, which are exhibited on tables, piled in corners or arranged on the floor. Borrowing their methodologies from paleontology or archeology, Dion's installations, interventions, performances and photographs critique how our culture reconciles its coexistence with nature, while at the same time revealing nature as a construct that is constantly being reshaped and reinterpreted. This publication provides a detailed look at Concerning Hunting, Dion's most recent project, an examination of the controversial cultural practice, in which Dion grapples with hunting's fundamental contradiction: the hunter's sensitivity to the balance of nature is cultivated as a means to becoming more skilled at finding and killing his prey.

The Marvelous Museum: Orphans, Curiosities & Treasures: A Mark Dion ProjectThe Marvelous Museum: Orphans, Curiosities & Treasures: A Mark Dion Project

Published by Chronicle.

What is the role of the museum in contemporary society? Using the Oakland Museum of California as a case study, artist Mark Dion examines how museum practices have shifted over time, what these changes mean for objects in museum collections, and what we can learn about our culture from what's included and what's abandoned. Enclosed in a clamshell case and featuring fourteen specimen cards, this deluxe volume brings the reader into Dion's process and reveals how the order of images can change one's perception of objects. Contributions from celebrated writers, including Lawrence Weschler and D. Graham Burnett, articulate Dion's unique power of examination.

Published by Phaidon.
Survey by Lisa Graziose Corrin, Interview by Miwon Kwon, Focus by Norman Bryson, Artist's Choice text by John Berger, Writings by Mark Dion.

This text explores the work of vanguard artist Mark Dion who has made site-specific projects all over the world which explore the relationship of Western art, literature and museology with the natural environment. His sculptures and installations often focus on contemporary environmental issues, and have the uncanny quality of film sets or dioramas. His life-size environments have included live and stuffed animals, plants, lab equipment, and museological displays of garbage. They present lyrical and funny investigations into exoticism, colonialism and environmental crisis. Dion himself has taken on a variety of personae including reporter, scientist, explorer and detective. He has also set up collaborations with anthropologists, zoologists, geographers and groups of school children, and is well-known for his drawings and his writings. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist's work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
