Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.From her early rarely seen Riot Grrrl-influenced fanzines and performances to a career that has produced seminal films, fiction, sculptures, public art, and even a smartphone app, Miranda July has proven adept at articulating the poignancy and humour of the human plight while also achieving enormous acclaim along the way. This chronological retrospective includes July's performance and video projects, award- winning films, digital multimedia, and written pieces which make clear the multidimensionality of her work. The book includes photography, stills, and archival ephemera and is narrated by friends, collaborators, curators, assistants, and audience members including David Byrne, Spike Jonze, Lena Dunham, Carrie Brownstein, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, as well as July herself. This behind-the-scenes commentary reveals an intimate perspective on the process, struggles, and grit involved in forging one's own path. What emerges is just how singular her voice is-from a movie narrated by an injured cat to a performance that builds an intentional community; from sculpture that engages the public to an interfaith charity shop in a London department store. July may be impossible to categorise, but the importance of her work and her status as an essential cultural icon with wide-ranging appeal is irrefutable.

"Titled simply Miranda July, Prestel's excellent new "mid-career retrospective" of the artist highlights July's enduring interest in the very darkest aspects of human existence." --Hyperallergic "If you're familiar with the award-winning author and filmmaker, this chronological survey of her idiosyncratic career will offer fascinating new insights into her cross-disciplinary work. And if you're not, well, get ready for a visually striking, celeb-filled (Carrie Brownstein! David Byrne! Spike Jonze!) introduction to one of the most interesting artists of our time." --Entertainment Weekly "It's a fascinating, chronological hop-scotch across formative pieces and works, delving into her archive to shed light on her constantly evolving process and heartfelt themes of intimacy and connectivity, whatever the medium. The section on Love Diamond is a personal fave, and the story of her square-toed nurses shoes." --Dazed "...the trick of Miranda July is how successfully it translates the technique to the page, tracking the ping-bang-whiz of her kinetic thoughts." --Alta
