Summary

Summary

One of the most adventurous American artists working today, Dennis Oppenheim has centered his artistic investigations on the dialogue between art and the self. An active innovator since the sixties, Oppenheim has pioneered both body art and so-called land art. Most famous for his whimsical, large-scale installation pieces, Oppenheim has worked with a variety of mediums: from performance and video art, to three dimensional moving machine pieces, and sculptural works employing unorthodox materials. This book is a comprehensive compendium of Oppenheim's art, his most complete monograph to date, and includes an interview with the artist. From a giant metallic upside-down church, to a group of human-sized hot dogs in sleeping bags gathered around a campfire, Oppenheim's work is alternately strange, humorous, and fascinating.
