Anri Sala: Answer Meedited by Margot Norton and Massimiliano Gioni

A monograph on the acclaimed French-Albanian artist Anri Sala, whose multichannel installations explore the perception of sound and images in relation to architectural spaces.

Since his debut film, Intervista (Finding the Words) (1998), to his recent installations that explore spatial and temporal manipulations of music, Anri Sala has developed a widely acclaimed multimedia practice founded in the interplay of images, sound and architectural space. Probing notions of memory and time—both personal and historical—Sala’s works engage the viewer’s awareness of being present while calling attention to the political dynamics of space.

Anri Sala: Answer Me is an overview of Sala’s career to date. Essays by Natalie Bell, Tacita Dean, Mark Godfrey, Boris Groys and Christine Macel, and an interview with the artist by Massimiliano Gioni, offer new perspectives on Sala’s oeuvre and guide readers through the development of his practice.
