Mike Nelson: Extinction Beckons
Foreword by Ralph Rugoff. Introduction by Yung Ma. Interview by Katie Guggenheim. Text by Dan Fox, Richard Grayson, Helen Hughes, Jaki Irvine, Jeremy Millar, Mike Nelson.
A major survey of the influential British artist famed for his psychologically charged labyrinthine installations
Mike Nelson (born 1967) is best known for his carefully assembled large-scale immersive environments that tell multilayered narratives while playing with and pushing the boundaries of space and scale. Although Nelsonís extraordinary output has cemented his position internationally, his oeuvre has not previously been explored in a major publication.
Designed in close collaboration with the artist, this book juxtaposes new writings with classic texts on seminal works. It includes newly commissioned essays by Yung Ma and Dan Fox and a comprehensive "lexicon" of Nelson's practice by Helen Hughes. The book also features a new interview with Nelson by Katie Guggenheim; a selection of previously published texts on key artworks by Richard Grayson, Jaki Irvine, Jeremy Millar and Mike Nelson; and a full exhibition history and bibliography. Also featured are images and ephemera from Nelsonís studio archive, many of which have never been published before.
