"I do not have a favorite portrait. It's like asking which child is your favorite. To me, the portraits are like windows. They show different scenes, and sometimes you stop longer looking at one than you do at another." -Robert Wilson

  

Robert Wilson: Space Time

Text by Franco Laera, Achille Bonito Oliva, Francesco Casetti, Noah Khoshbin, Carmelo Marabello, Robert L. Pincus, Matthew Shattuck, Robert Wilson.

Robert Wilson: Space TimeFew contemporary artists have spanned the varied horizon of the arts as broadly as Robert Wilson (born 1941). His legendary Video Portraits, incorporating lighting, costume, make up, choreography, gesture, text, voice, set design and narrative, are perhaps the most complete synthesis of media that Wilson has undertaken. Among their subjects are Isabelle Huppert, Brad Pitt, Salma Hayek, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp, Jeanne Moreau, Winona Ryder, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Isabella Rossellini and even an entire zoo. Wilsonís video portraits reveal the essence of his theatre. Here as on stage, action is the outcome of disassembled, atomized gestures, achieved by reducing the languages of words, gestures and behaviors to their basic grammar. This volume reproduces a wealth of the portraits, and includes essays by Achille Bonito Oliva, Robert L. Pincus, Francesco Casetti and Carmelo Marabello, together with an interview with the artist.

FROM THE BOOK
"In the portraits of Brad Pitt, Jonny Depp, Jeanne Moreau, Isabella Rosselini and of an entire zoo, the Texan artist has eliminated the proverbial freeze-frame from these portraits, the static pose of traditional portrayals, shifting it to a boundary hovering between art and life, space and time, thanks to movement." -Achille Bonito Oliva
