 About the Book 

British artist Michael Landy has made a career out of getting and spending, whether hes building something designed to self-destruct, or creating a closing down sale in an art gallery. This first major monograph of Landys 20-year careerMoreBritish artist Michael Landy has made a career out of getting and spending, whether hes building something designed to self-destruct, or creating a closing down sale in an art gallery. This first major monograph of Landys 20-year career compiles extensive photos of exhibits, a scrapbook of press clippings, and reproductions of works on paper. Among other works, this survey discusses his infamous Break Down, where Landy destroyed all 7,227 of his (lovingly cataloged) possessions, and Semi-Detached, a full-scale model of his boyhood home. With over 800 color images, including an interview with the artist and essays by Richard Flood, Rochelle Steiner and Richard Stone. An artist with a refreshing, humorous and profound take on modern consumer culture.
