Anri Sala is the first monograph of its scale and scope on the young Albanian-born contemporary artist whose haunting videos, photographs and installations have been applauded by critics and curators the world over. Though Sala's work employs straight documentary practices, it also weaves its formal concerns (light and darkness, monochrome and color, sound and silence) into a poetic investigation of its medium. Among other distinctions, Sala was awarded the Young Artist Prize at the 49th Venice Biennale (2001) and nominated for the Guggenheim's prestigious Hugo Boss Prize (2002). Anri Sala includes an informative survey of Sala's work by Mark Godfrey, an interview of the artist by Hans Ulrich Obrist, focus by Liam Gillick, and writings by Anri Sala himself.
