The book, conceived for the exhibition with the same title, is the first publication dedicated to the young artist from Los Angeles. It presents a detailed iconographic documentation of the imposing installation on exhibit. The piece is a reflection on immortality and its denial, permeating Western culture, which, according to the artist, is declining and experiencing a profound crisis. The book is further enriched by a series of drawings and silk- screen prints especially made for the publication.
