Brian Jungen has been celebrated for transforming basic consumer items into evocative objects, rich with humor and meaning. A member of the Doig River band of the Dunne-za Nation, he uses unexpected materials to challenge the influence ethnography has in forming cultural identity. The first survey of his work, the book features essays from respected curators, plus an interview with the artist himself, which set his work in context. Accompanying the text are spectacular reproductions of some of Jungen's most provocative pieces, from early sculptures to recent large-scale installations. Paperback. 176 pages, 170 illustrations. 11" x 10"
Jungen's work is on view in the exhibition, Brian Jungen: Strange Comfort, October 16, 2009-August 8, 2010 at the National Museum of the American Indian.
