Apocalypse - First edition

2000, ISBN: 9780810966321

ID: 197160282

Abrams (New York) 2000. Mint in publishers decorated wrappers in slipcase (still shrink wrapped). 256pp. Illustrated throughout. 1st edition. The horror, the horror. Three years after Royal Academy Exhibition Secretary Norman Rosenthal organised the controversial "Sensation" comes the sequel, "Apocalypse". It takes as its philosophical starting point the Book of Revelations, though the subtitle exposes a compromising catch-all: "Beauty and Horror in Contemporary Art". The kitsch creations of Jeff Koons and Mariko Mori, and the casual photography of Wolfgang Tillmans, provide superficial beauty, while the most obvious horror is "Hell", Jake and Dinos Chapman's truly apocalyptic sculpture comprising nine glass cases arranged in a swastika, containing 5,000 figurines of Nazis and their torturers indulging in unspeakable sadism. This Goya-esque vision of eternal return is the centrepiece of the exhibition, and rightly so. Charles Saatchi's money was well spent. But, apart from the brutally understated paintings of Luc Tuymans' paintings, Rosenthal's evangelical vision creates an art theme park, from Gregor Schneider's claustrophobic cellarage, "a cathedral of erotic misery", or, more prosaically, a fairground Haunted House through which one clambers, to Mori's dream machine, and Darren Almond's Auschwitz bus stops. After such one-trick ponies, Maurizio Cattelan's blackly comic fallen Pope, struck by a meteorite, proves welcome. Alive or dead, infallible, or found out, the rich ambiguity goes to the crux of belief. ISBN 0810966328, Abrams (New York) 2000

Royal Academy of Arts, November 2000. Hardcover. Used - Very Good. Apocalypse accompanies one of the most exciting art events of the year. Concentrating on themes inspired by the coming of the 21st century, this internationally significant exhibition -- the successor to the controversial 'Sensation' exhibition shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York -- will include installations, paintings, sculptures, and videos, many specially created for the exhibition by 15 internationally renowned and controversial artists whose identities are a closely guarded secret. For the catalogue, the talented young photographer Norbert Schoerner has photographed the artists at work in their studios. Norman Rosenthal, exhibitions secretary at the Royal Academy and curator of the exhibition, contributes an introduction explaining his personal vision of the arts at this turning point in history. Thought-provoking and authoritative essays on each artist have been provided by leading art writers. Sure to attract international attention, Apocalypse is an essential purchase for anyone interested in contemporary art., Royal Academy of Arts
