About this title
Danish painter, poet, filmmaker, architect, and sculptor Per Kirkeby is one of
Scandinavia's most celebrated living artists. His engagement with natural and
geologic processes is highlighted in this beautiful new exhibition catalog from
Kunsthalle Giessen featuring photographs of his brick sculpture Gießen (1996)
and large-scale charcoal drawings relating to in a series titled Masonites (1977-97).
Earlier works are also featured including tempera paintings, bronze models,
drawings, and several intensely colored monotypes. The sculpture, created
to connect two building complexes at Justus Leibig University, stands as built
metaphor of Kirkeby's career-long focus on nature's processes from sediment to
culture. This excellent look into Kirkeby's work, which has appeared at Documenta
and in the collections of the Tate Modern, Phillips Collection, MOMA, NY and the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, includes beautiful color plates and essays by Ute
Riese and Marcel Baumgartner on the artist's processes and ideas.
Achim Borchardt-Hume is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Tate Modern and the author of Rothko and Albers and Maholy-Nagy.
Richard Shiff is Professor of Art History at the University of Texas in Austin and the author of Critical Terms for Art History and Cézanne and the End of Impressionism.
