Archaeological excavations aren’t limited to ancient Egypt or Stone Age villages. Archaeology explores artist Mark Dion’s far more contemporary digs: History Trash Dig 1995, History Trash Scan 1996, Raiding Neune’s Vault 1997 and the Tate Thames Dig, Beachcombing on London’s Foreshore 1999. This thought-provoking book provides commentary taken from interviews between Dion and the books editor Alex Coles, as well as from the artist’s Tate Gallery lecture program. Archaeology documents not only Dion’s latest works but many that were, until now, unpublished. Dimension: 8 x 10 inches, 80 b&w and color reproductions.
