David Altmejd

Featured detail of the sculpture "Man I" (2007) is reproduced from Damiani's massive new retrospective monograph on Canadian-born artist David Altmejd, which launches Monday, May 12 at The Strand in New York. Altmejd will appear in conversation with art historian Robert Hobbs, who writes in his catalog essay, "Altmejd’s work provides a basis for rethinking a vast array of topics, such as art and energy, the ongoing dynamics of becoming, the separation of humans and animals, lucid dreaming, the metaphor of the mirror and the self, the artist as facilitator instead of sole generator of an idea, and the postmodern grotesque," further quoting the artist, "I see my work as post-apocalyptic. The basis is disaster, but then it's about how things grow on top of that."
