Michael Clark: Cosmic dancer
Coinciding with a major exhibition at Barbican Art Gallery, this richly-illustrated book features an exclusive interview with Clark alongside a series of enlightening essays and contributions, from Jarvis Cocker to Kim Jones, amongst others. It retraces the evolution of Clark’s remarkable career, looking at his inimitable ability to combine technical rigour with experimentation.
Michael Clark is a defining figure in the British cultural landscape. As a young choreographer emerging in the early 1980s, Clark brought together his classical ballet training with London’s punk, fashion and club culture to establish himself as a pioneering artist in contemporary dance, working in close collaboration with a broad range of artists and musicians such as Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Charles Atlas, Cerith Wyn Evans, Peter Doig, Wolfgang Tillmans, The Fall, and many more.
