Books by Ed Atkins

  • Old Food

    Ed Atkins

    Product Code: CBWON
    Paperback
    One of the most widely celebrated artists of his generation, Ed Atkins makes videos, draws, and writes, developing a complex and deeply figured discourse around definition, wherein the impossibilities for sufficient representations of the physical, specifically corporeal, world - from computer generated imagery to bathetic poetry - are hysterically rehearsed. Written in conjunction with his solo exhibition of the same name, OLD FOOD explores mass consumption, both physical and digital, through our relationship with food. Artfully rendering humanity's insatiable appetite into pungent yet enthralling prose, Atkins portrays a world permeated with empty signifiers, replete with content yet increasingly devoid of meaning.

  • A Primer for Cadavers

    Ed Atkins

    Product Code: AZFWY
    Paperback
    One of the most widely celebrated artists of his generation, Ed Atkins makes videos, draws, and writes, developing a complex and deeply figured discourse around definition, wherein the impossibilities for sufficient representations of the physical, specifically corporeal, world - from computer generated imagery to bathetic poetry - are hysterically rehearsed. A PRIMER FOR CADAVERS, a startlingly original first collection, brings together a selection of his texts from 2010 to 2016. 'Part prose-poetry, part theatrical direction, part script-work, part dream-work,' writes Joe Luna in his afterword, 'Atkins' texts present something as fantastic and commonplace as the record of a creation, the diary of a writer glued to the screenof their own production, an elegiac, erotic Frankenstein for the twenty-first century.'
