Richard Wilson is one of the foremost exponents of installation art working in the world today. His seminal work 20:50, a sea of reflective sump oil permanently installed in the Saatchi Collection, London, has been described as "one of the masterpieces of the twentieth century." More recent pieces that have generated universal critical acclaim include Slice of Reality, a 70-foot high vertical cross-section of a 600-ton dredger located in the Thames next to the Millennium Dome in London, and Set North for Japan, a full-scale steel framework replica of the artist's own house, displaced and inverted in the Japanese countryside. This, the first monograph on the artist, examines the full spectrum of his work, moving from models, drawings, and his many gallery-based projects to collaborations with architects and engineers to realize such major architectural interventions as Over Easy, a 25-foot, imperceptibly rotating, disc-shaped section of a building's facade that challenges our collective expectation and experience of how space and materials should behave. Richard Wilson includes more than fifty pieces made over the past twenty years, as well as a comprehensive checklist that also includes earlier projects from the 1970s, offering a long overdue survey of the work of one of the most important artists of modern times.
