9780854881963: Nature (Documents of Contemporary Art)

Nature, as both subject and object, has repeatedly been rejected and reclaimed by artists over the last half century. With the dislocation of disciplinary boundaries in visual culture, art that is engaged with nature has also forged connections with a new range of scientific, historical and philosophical ideas. Developing technologies make our interventions into natural systems both increasingly refined and profound. And advances in biological and telecommunication technology continually modify the way we 'present' ourselves. So too are artistic representations of nature (human and otherwise) being transformed. This anthology addresses these issues by considering how the rise of transdisciplinary practices in the postwar era allowed for new kinds of artistic engagement with nature. These include the post-minimalist inscriptions associated with Land art; environmentally engaged practices designed to propose novel forms of stewardship; and more recent projects concerned with relationships between the most subtle and minute components of life and the large-scale appearance of the world. These problematize and unsettle the most basic operations of 'natural' personhood and identity.Including a wide range of writings by and about artists, juxtaposed with influential texts from diverse theoretical bases, this collection provides an overview of the eclectic scientific and philosophical sources that inform contemporary art's investigations of nature. Writers and artists surveyed include: Giorgio Agamben, Jesse Ashlock, Michael Auping, Aziz + Cucher, Gaston Bachelard, Brandon Ballengee, Gregory Bateson, Jane Bennett, Henri Bergson, Joseph Beuys, Claire Bishop, Suzaan Boettger, Roger Caillois, Oron Catts, Mel Chin, Emma Cocker, Steven Connor, Lynne Cooke, Critical Art Ensemble, Walter De Maria, Jacques Derrida, herman de vries, Mark Dion, Vilem Flusser, George Gessert, Oliver Grau, Tim Griffin, Felix Guattari, Hans Haacke, Henrik Hakansson, Peter Halley, Donna Haraway, Helen & Newton Harrison, David Harvey, Pierre Huyghe, Eduardo Kac, Bruno Latour, Pamela M.Lee, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Tom McDonough, Denise Markonish, Mary Mattingly, Ana Mendieta, Laurent Mignonneau, Jacques Monod, Robert Morris, Arne Naess, Thomas Nagel, Trevor Paglen, Jane Prophet, Ingeborg Reichle, Alexis Rockman, Nikolas Rose, Andrew Ross, Tomas Saraceno, Mark Sheerin, Bonnie Sherk, Robert Smithson, Christa Sommerer, Alan Sonfist, Stelarc, Paul Tebbs, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Vladimir Vernadsky, Victoria Vesna, Carl Zimmer, Andrea Zittel and Ionat Zurr.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Kastner is a New York-based writer and critic, and senior editor of Cabinet. Formerly senior editor of ARTnews, he has written extensively on contemporary art in numerous catalogues and journals. His books include Land and Environmental Art (1998).

Review:

"While exploring how artists and theorists mediate between the spheres of nature and culture, [Nature] also raises productive questions about how 'otherness' is defined between and within natural categories." - Wendy Vogel, The Brooklyn Rail "This is a really outstanding collection of texts around the idea of nature as it has been theorized by and for artists over the last hundred years. There is almost no important moment in the history that is not included, and the selections are precisely chosen and brief without being fragmentary. It's appropriate, too, that theorists are mixed with practitioners: Giorgio Agamben, Thomas Nagel, Michel Serres; Eduardo Kac, Robert Smithson, Mierle Laderman Ukeles ... In this book they are all at work together on Western culture's most under-coded and over-coded concept. This is a rare anthology, both necessary and sufficient, both clear and infuriatingly provocative." - James Elkins, E.C. Chadbourne Chair in the Department of Art History, Theory and Criticism, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
