Spanish-Australian artist Dani Marti (born 1963) challenges the conventions of portraiture with his handwoven “canvases,” intricate networks of ropes and objects that, like Felix González-Torres’ candy spills, create a psychological representation of their subject. This first major monograph overviews his career, including his woven pieces and documentary-style--and sometimes sexually explicit--video portraits.
