British conceptual artist John Stezaker (b. 1949) is known for his distinctive, often deceptively simple, collages. Using antique travel postcards, famous movie starlet headshots from the 1940s, and old movie stills, Stezaker creates a world full of mystery and humor in each artwork. Critic David Campany described Stezaker as “drawn to that very slim space between convention and idiosyncrasy.” Lost World is the exhibition catalog of recent collages, sculptural works, and a film titled Crowd, which is composed of hundreds of vintage black and white film stills of crowd scenes. The smartly designed catalog of new work accompanies the touring exhibition from the City Gallery, Wellington, New Zealand (2017). Stezanker’s work can be found in major museums around the world, including the Tate Modern, London, and MoMA, New York. This is Stezaker’s fourth publication with Ridinghouse. Essays by Geoffrey Batchen, David Campany, and Robert Leonard.
