Between 2017 and 2021 artist Doug Aitken presented his site-specific installation entitled “Mirage” in the California desert outside Palm Springs, at a defunct Detroit bank, and nestled in the Swiss Alps. “Mirage” takes the form of a ranch-style suburban American house whose exterior is entirely clad in reflective mirrored surfaces that camouflage it in landscapes far removed from the familiar lawn and picket fence. The book is an immersive chronicle of the three installations, featuring photographs, architectural drawings, and other materials related to the project accompanied by a text by Neville Wakefield as well as an interview with the artist. Handmade with cold foils, silver printing, an exposed spine, and bound as a leporello, this extraordinary document is a tour de force of the bookmaker’s art.
A brand new, most handsome example of the first edition limited to one thousand copies additionally BOLDLY SIGNED “Doug Aitken” in ink.
