Gabriel LesterForced Perspectives

With contributions by Lee Ambrozy, Gabriel Lester, Philippe Pirotte, Vivian Sky Rehberg

In this book Gabriel Lester’s prolific adventures and art practice are illustrated through an alphabetical assortment of his most prominent installations, interventions, sculptures, and films of the past fifteen years. Alongside comprehensive exhibition documentation, the actual construction and installation of the artworks is presented. Pairing result and production enables an exclusive insight into the teamwork and organization that allowed each work to be realized. This blend provides a glimpse behind the scenes and demonstrates the inherent performativity and narrative of all of Lester’s artworks, affecting their creation, result, and the ultimate experience.

Forced Perspectives is Lester’s second monograph. It is designed by acclaimed graphic designer Irma Boom and contains essays by Philippe Pirotte, director of the Städelschule and Portikus in Frankfurt am Main; Lee Ambrozy, art historian and editor of artforum.com.cn; and Vivian Sky Rehberg, historian, art critic, and course director of the Master of Fine Art at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam.
