Michael Landy : H2NY │By (author)  Barry Schwabsky , By (author)  Calvin Tomkins


In 1960, Dadaist artist Jean Tinguely took three weeks to build a self-destroying machine, Homage to New York, and it combusted in 27 minutes in the garden of the Museum of Modern Art as a star-studded audience looked on. Forty-seven years later, British artist Michael Landy has created an homage to Tinguely's Homage. Using photos, films and remains of Tinguely's original work, Landy produced these 40 whimsical, detailed studies on paper for the re-enactment of the self-destructing machine's erformance, reproduced in this crisp, black-and-white book, which also includes press accounts of the 1960 event. Art that selfdestructs for a throw-away age. Produced by Alexander and Bonin gallery in New York and Thomas Dane gallery in London.
