William Shakespeare x Marcel Dzama: A Midsummer Night's Dream (Hardback)

£22.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Set in an enchanted forest, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is the ideal subject for artist Marcel Dzama, whose work frequently references dreams, fairy tales, and mythical worlds.



Inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses, Shakespeare's celebrated romantic comedy intertwines multiple narratives under the influence of transformation and witchcraft. The play is often staged with actors wearing animal masks, an aspect that appeals particularly to Dzama, whose work is characterized by the fusion of human and animal, fantasy and reality.



As the second title in David Zwirner Books's Seeing Shakespeare series, this book revisits this ultimate fairy tale through the eyes of a contemporary artist who feels a special affinity for its imagery.

Since rising to prominence in the late 1990s, Canadian-born artist Marcel Dzama (b. 1974) has developed an immediately recognizable visual language that investigates human action and motivation, as well as the blurred relationship between the real and the subconscious. Drawing equally from folk vernacular as from art-historical and contemporary influences, Dzama's work visualizes a universe of childhood fantasies and otherworldly fairy tales. Leslie Jamison is the New York Times best-selling author of The Recovering: Intoxication and Its Aftermath (2018), a critical memoir; two essay collections, The Empathy Exams (2014) and Make It Scream, Make It Burn (2019); and a novel, The Gin Closet (2010). She is a contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and directs the graduate nonfiction program at Columbia University.
