Abracadabra: International Contemporary Art

Front Cover
Tate Gallery Publishing, 1999 - Art - 128 pages
Spotlighting the creativity of a new generation, this publication brings together the work of 15 young international artists in an enlivening exploration of the spirit of fantasy. The ordinary is transformed by dreams into the extraordinary, free from the concerns and constraints of reality, yet rooted in the experience of humdrum, everyday life. This fresh and emergent art plays games, tells stories, and restores the pleasure of existence. From drawings, paintings, and texts, to objects, installations, and videos, all materials and techniques are used and mixed in an inventive and playful way.
