Francis Alÿs – Walking Distance from the Studio

/ szt.

The ephemeral-the temporary, fleeting character of life-is a central principle in the art of Francis Alÿs, who was born in 1959 in Antwerp and now lives in Mexico. He conceives his works in his own immediate surroundings-on walks through the streets of Mexico City.

Working in the traditions of Fluxus and the Situationists, he is captivated by such images as a wind-blown plastic bag or sleeping homeless people or the wandering shadow of a flag pole on the Plaza Major. Francis Alÿs's explorations of public space and social conditions in Mexico City are the primary focus of this lavishly illustrated publication.

It features his Ambulantes (1992-2002), a slide series devoted to the itinerant street merchants of the Mexican megacity, and thus offers fascinating insights into the most recent work of Francis Alÿs, recipient of the first blueOrange Art Prize, awarded in 2004.
