The dislocation of modern society is the subject of this artist's work, and he approaches it with wit and abandon. Combining photographs with film and video stills, as well as texts from performance scripts, this book is a funny but accurate reflection of contemporary society. Accompanying an exhibition of the same name, Private Enemy-Public Eye has an introduction by former Artforum editor Charles Hagen. "So beguiling in its colors, so disorienting in its combination of realism and contrivances and yet so inviting, that it takes a few moments for the sense of menace to fully dawn."--Thomas Albright, San Francisco Chronicle.
