Das Lied Von Der Erde: Guillermo Kuitca
Daros-Latinamerica, 2006 - Art - 236 pages
Argentine painter Guillermo Kuitca, born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, is widely considered one of the most important contemporary artists in South America. Architecture, theater, music and cartography play a central role in his work, where maps and blueprints are condensed into a world of poetic and territorial fantasies, and reality and fiction overlap. Whether depicting an "Acoustic Mass" at the Old Vic or a constellation map of "Heaven," in each painting or drawing collected here, Kuitca measures the world anew, shedding light on complex spatial contexts and intertwined social processes. This beautifully designed volume, the first monograph devoted to the artist, features a padded cover, black-on-black endpapers, tab separated sections and paper changes. An insightful interview by Hans-Michael Herzog leads into three distinct plate sections, followed by a biography and a bibliography. Guillermo Kuitca is represented in the United States by Sperone Westwater gallery in New York and L.A. Louver in Los Angeles.
