As the first collection of works that gives a complete overview of “Enochu”,
A long-awaited book published in 2006!

A man who went to Hungary with his whole body half-cut. A man who wore a sunburn with the symbol of the Expo on his stomach and strode around the city half-naked. A man who created a bar in an art gallery, dressed as a woman for two days, and invited the audience as Rosechu. Then there's the man who dismantled railroads and ships and used approximately 25 tons of scrap metal to create a gigantic mechanical sculpture called Space Lobster P-81. Enoki Chuu is an artist who has left behind shocking works and anecdotes.
Tadashi Enoki, who started his career based in Kobe in the 1960s and is still active today, constantly stimulates viewers with his many artistic expressions using his own body, highlighting human potential and the relationship with society. I've been to Countless writers have been inspired by his work, including Takashi Murakami and Kenji Yanobe.

This book can be considered an introductory guide to Tadashi Enoki, covering his activities and works from 1965 to 2006.
Don't miss the chronology from its birth in 1944 to the exhibition schedule in 2007, which is printed directly from Enoki's handwritten manuscript in his notebook!
*At the end of the book is a bonus sticker with a redesigned Bar Rose Chu (1979) liquor label.

*Enoki's handprints and fingerprints are printed throughout the magazine (this is a design, not a stain).
