    A major French contemporary artist, Boltanski - for his magical installations - collects old photos, clothing & personal objects which are presented as archival artefacts tracing individual lives. His own autobiography is itself presented as fiction, particularly in his early `mischievous' performative work which invents a self-identity using found photos. He often use everyday documents - passport photographs,school portraits & family albums - to memorialize ordinary people: the unknown children killed in the Holocaust, the citizens of a Swiss town or the employees of a Halifax carpet factory. Chronology, biblio., list of illus. 160p.
