This stunning book chronicles the work of one of North America's most promising young artists. Essays from four internationally respected curators, plus an interview with the artist himself, set his work in context. Winner of the inaugural Sobey Art Award in 2002 ? a prestigious prize for young contemporary artists ? Brian Jungen has been celebrated for producing work that transforms basic consumer items into evocative objects, rich with both humor and meaning often linked to his American Indian heritage. A member of the Doig River band in northern British Columbia, he uses various materials to challenge the influence ethnography has in forming cultural identity.
