A collection of work by Colomer, an insider s view to his uniquely creative and multidisciplinary world. Jordi Colomer stages characters in urban spaces, in a way that is at the same time dreamlike and concrete. The silent cinema, the modernist architecture, and also common representations, ideological or commonplace, constitute important references in his work. The book approaches over 15 works, old and recent creations, many video installations, through sequences of images and texts conceived in a specific way. Featuring discussions and critical texts on Jordi Colomer, this is fascinating overview of his career and work which reveals his links between architecture, time, fiction, simulacrum, spectator, object and history.
