The Event Horizon
Artwork by Michelangelo Pistoletto. Contributions by Declan McGonagle, Pat Murphy. Screenplay by Atom Egoyan. Text by Michael Tarantino.
Featuring poems, artist's projects, film stills and photographs, The Event Horizon presents the work of over 15 European artists and is based on an exhibit held at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. The title of the book is borrowed from an essay by the great Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni, and refers to the shifting perspective of narrative. The theme of narrative recurs throughout the book, which combines text by the artists with images from their work. Included are Helena Almeida, Anna-Eva Bergman, Marie-Jose Burki, Atom Egoyan, Seamus Farrell, Ann Veronica Janssens, Sigalit Landau, Colin Newman/Malka Sigel (Immersion), Nusret Pasic, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Tim Robinson, Sam Taylor-Wood, Jean-Pierre Temmerman and Mitja Tusek.
