In less than ten years he created some thirty-five works of art in which falling, physical and emotional vulnerability and mortality are the central themes. Published to coincide with a retrospective exhibition, this thoroughly illustrated catalogue provides a much needed overview of these and other aspects of Ader's work. Also includes contributions by Tacita Dean, Jorg Heiser and Erik Beenker, amongst others.
