By turns funny and abstruse, "The Shimmering Beast" brings together the best pieces of prose by accomplished video artist Steve Reinke. Hybrids of criticism, fiction, and personal essays, each chapter takes on another's work, while reinterpreting the role of the critic - as supplicant, as cannibal, as skeptic. Reinke looks at the visual arts with a particularly literary eye, notably in his shrewd writing on Philip Hoffman's film "Kitchener - Berlin", and his subjects are diverse and fascinating. Featured artists include filmmaker Frank Cole, video artists Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby, photographer Doug Ischar, and more. Poetic, absurd, and tartly poignant, these texts record the process and reach of an artistic mind at the height of its powers.
