Jean-Marc Bustamante Dead Calm
Published by The Fruitmarket Gallery & The Henry Moore Institute, with the support of Timothy Taylor Gallery on the occasion of a major collaborative exhibition of historic and recent work by Jean-Marc Bustamante.
Jean-Marc Bustamante is one of France’s senior artists and a major figure in the international art world. His clear, direct vision manifests itself in an almost bewildering array of materials and media – photography, sculpture, painting, architectural projects and installation. His work is unified and characterised by its calm intelligence and a kind of extraordinary ordinariness that helps us see its subject, the world arounds us, in a new way. Bustamante’s art has not been seen enough in Britain.
The Fruitmarket Gallery and Henry Moore Institute are delighted to introduce this influential and important work to new audiences in Scotland and England through both this book and the complementary and overlapping exhibitions it accompanies. This publication illustrates Bustamante’s practice from the late 1970s through to 2010 and includes a range of critical essays commissioned on the occasion of the exhibition Dead Calm, alongside texts translated into English for the first time.
