Summary
Does 3 a.m. represent the current Zeitgeist? At this dread hour, there's doubt that the day will ever come, a sense of reaching the nadir, of being in a dark place. It's the shadow side of our daylight existence, lawless and demonic. But 3 a.m. is also a time for refuge and release, for dreams and adventure, creativity and imagination. This book accompanies an exhibition of the same name, curated by Angela Kingston, and features over 20 contemporary artists who step into the night to create artworks that reflect this strange, numinous hour, between the last traces of day and the first glimmer of morning. 3am: wonder, paranoia and the restless night drips with insomnia. It is an adolescent running free, a man alone and afraid, a woman gazing at the cosmos, an unexpected coupling, an emboldened fox. Edited by Bryan Biggs, the book also combines images with texts by writers, from Robert Louis Stevenson to Robert Macfarlane, who have conjectured the far night as something extraordinary, and includes essays by Angela Kingston and Sara-Jayne Parsons, and a new short story by Ailsa Cox. Contemporary artists featured: Franics Alÿs, Tonico Lemos Auad, Jordan Baseman, Sandra Cinto, Dorothy Cross, Dornith Doherty, Anthony Goicolea, Marc Hulson, Rachel Kneebone, Nathan Mabry, Michael Palm and Willi Dorner, Hirsch Perlman, Ed Pien, Lucy Reynolds, Sophy Rickett, Paul Rooney, Anj Smith, Fred Tomaselli, Danny Treacy, Bettina von Zwehl and Tom Wood. -- Publisher's description
