Adam McEwen: I Think I'm in Love
New York–based British artist Adam McEwen (born 1965) is known for works that engage viewers with a dark yet poignant sense of humor. Once employed to write obituaries for the London Daily Telegraph, McEwen began producing fictional obituaries of living subjects such as Bill Clinton, Kate Moss and Jeff Koons. His recent sculptural works include objects such as a life-size coffin-carrier fabricated from solid graphite (Bier, 2013) and deployed airbags cast in concrete (2015). Designed in close collaboration with the artist, this book includes a selection of works that address the blurred boundaries between reality and fiction, and the everyday and the obscure, and features new texts by Wayne Koestenbaum, Lane Relyea and Heidi Zuckerman, alongside influential reprinted texts by writers Thomas Bernhard and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, as well as a short piece by the artist himself.
