Düsseldorf-based Hans-Peter Feldmann is a passionate collector of images and stories, an original thinker and one of the first conceptual artists. This is Feldmann's most personal book, a racy parcours through images before and behind the retina: clouds and strawberries, women in graceful poses, pants that don't fit, the longing of retired civil servants, flying people, Christmas decorations, soccer images, collections of country-code plates and much more. These images are at once common, strange, smart, stupid and human. Of his focus on the "poetic moments of the ordinary," a 2003 review in Artforum said, "It is precisely this continual, ever-expanding reflection on and skepticism about the various functions and values of images, their truth content and modes of employment, that make Feldmann's work now seem seminal. And his relevance to contemporary art practice derives not least from his acknowledgment of the arbitrary relationship between signifier and signified, the moments of displacement and projection inherent in every form of representation."
Martin Clark is a circuit court judge. He lives in Stuart, Virginia.
