The catalogue for a photography exhibition presented by the Contemporary Art Centre in Malaga featuring over 100 works of art by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz, this weighty volume documents the spectrum of materials the artist employs to create works that are both reproductions of famous artworks and stand-alone masterpieces. “Optical illusions combine with reality in order to play surprising visual tricks. Sugar, jam, chocolate, rubbish, dust, earth, thread and wire are just some of the materials used…” With texts by Antonio Soler and Fernando Francés, plus an extensive interview with Muniz by Juan Uslé about the nature of his work.
