Studio Frith designs Clark monograph

Frith Kerr and Studio Frith have designed an extraordinary book for an extraordinary artist – the avant-garde dancer and choreographer Michael Clark

Frith Kerr and Studio Frith have designed an extraordinary book for an extraordinary artist – the avant-garde dancer and choreographer Michael Clark

As well as being one of the foremost dancers of his generation, Clark was renowned for his collaborations with the denizens of London’s post-punk scene. In his costumes (many of which were designed by Leigh Bowery) and staging, Clark has been consistently provocative and imaginative resulting in the wealth of spectacular imagery that populates this 348-page retrospective from Violette Editions.

Clark’s idiosyncratic way with punctutation and capitalisation in the titles of his work is referenced by Kerr in a series of title pages in fluoro yellow throughout the book while the type playfully alludes to dance.

 

 

A really stunning piece of work. Michael Clark is published in September by Violette Editions, £45
