This combined monograph and CD-ROM is the first major publication on the artist Keith Piper. It contains a new essay by writer and critic Kobena Mercer based on an extended dialogue with the artist and provides the most in-depth analysis of Piper's life and work to-date. Over the past fifteen years, Piper has produced some of the most distinctive and consistently challenging work of any British artist. Emerging at a time when black artists were declaring a new and radical voice in this country, Piper's work has interpreted powerfully the iniquities and struggles of black diasporan experience for a broad contemporary audience. The enhanced CD-ROM, fully-authored by the artist, echoes the idea of a physical expedition in its labyrinth of user interactive 'virtual spaces'. Users are able to explore, excavate and assemble fragments from various thematically-linked bodies of work. Access to newly-authored interactive projects and digitised documentation of past works is gained by entering three virtual gallery spaces: UnMapped; UnRecorded; and UnClassified which further explore and define the thematic concerns of Piper's work.
