Large thorough monograph. First edition. “With his eclectic oeuvre, Per Kirkeby is one of most prominent representatives of contemporary art. After receiving his doctorate in geology, he turned his attention to visual art. The impressions he gained during various expeditions in the far north are reflected in his artistic works. Polar breeze and gentle lapping of the waves seem to permeate his paintings, drawings, watercolours, and prints as well as his sculptures, stage designs, films, structures, and literary works. The volume unfolds the extent of Kirkeby’s thought and creative output: the subtle colour palette of his painting; the structural design, for instance, of his brick buildings; the scrutiny of his own vision, which is discernible, for example, in his sculptures and prints”. Texts by: Prof. Dr. Siegfried Gohr, Nils Ohlsen, Beat Wismer u.a., Paul Erik Tojner, Christiane Lukatis, Asger Schnack, Richard Shiff, Minik Rosing, Wolfgang Rihm, Lars von Trier
