William Shakespeare x Marcel Dzama: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hardback Book

William Shakespeare x Marcel Dzama: A Midsummer Night's Dream Hardback

Part of the Seeing Shakespeare series

Hardback

Description

Set in an enchanted forest, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is the ideal subject for artist Marcel Dzama, whose work frequently references dreams, fairy tales, and mythical worlds. Inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses, Shakespeare's celebrated romantic comedy intertwines multiple narratives under the influence of transformation and witchcraft.

The play is often staged with actors wearing animal masks, an aspect that appeals particularly to Dzama, whose work is characterized by the fusion of human and animal, fantasy and reality. As the second title in David Zwirner Books's Seeing Shakespeare series, this book revisits this ultimate fairy tale through the eyes of a contemporary artist who feels a special affinity for its imagery.
