In School Spirit French artist Pierre Huyghe chooses to encounter Canadian writer Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X. High school yearbooks become the framework for constructing a narrative and characters and also for creating a meditation on memory.
Huyghe and Coupland team up to explore the awkwardness and ironic sentimentality of high school. Culled from actual photos and real inscriptions from old ’80s yearbooks, School Spirit exhumes the jocks, geeks and valley girls of a forgotten adolescence.
The book is strung together by the story of one dead student, recalling the goofiness and despondency of the ‘times of our lives’.”–BlackBook Magazine,
