Gordon is one of a number of Glasgow-trained artists who came to prominence in the 1990s. He has gone on to achieve huge international recognition, marked by major awards, including the Turner Prize in 1996, and by exhibitions in museums in Europe and America.

Gordon works with film, video, photographs, objects and texts, examining issues such as memory and identity, good and evil, life and death. He makes great play with the doubling of images often in positive and negative or in mirrored form. This book shows all the important aspects of Gordon’s work, both past and present. In addition, it is specially tailored to bring out the particularly Scottish nature of Gordon’s ideas and practice.

It contains essays by the exhibition curator, Keith Hartley, Senior Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; Dr Holger Broeker of the Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg; Dr Jaroslav Andel of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Prague and a new short story by the renowned Scottish author Ian Rankin, specially written for this book.
