The first monograph about the Italian-British artist Seb Patane (b. Catania, Italy 1970) offers solid insight into an oeuvre that has since the mid-1990s consistently ventured a fresh perspective on a great variety of possible constructions of identity. Stepping into Seb Patane’s world, we are drawn into a play of references, symbols, and signs that elicit different responses depending on the individual beholder’s personal context. Found images and objects, graphical interventions, sounds, and performances, including Kraftwerk’s electronic-industrial music, the psycho-magical ideas and tarot cards of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the media representation of Christiane F., and historic depictions of the great wars, blend in a sort of alchemy in which previously inconceivable interrelations suddenly make sense, opening up new possibilities of thought. Includes essays by Heike Munder, Bettina Steinbrügge, Catherine Wood, and Rob Young.
