Richard Serra, Lemgo vectors

Front Cover
Richter, 1999 - Art - 119 pages
This book documents the creation, placement, and finished artifact of Richard Serra's recently completed public sculptural work Lemgo Vectors -- which consists of three large, 16 ton forged steel cubes, situated outside on the hilly Staff Foundation Landscape Park near the town of Lemgo. The book lavishly and meticulously documents this characteristically mysterious work of Serra's, and includes an extensive accounting by Serra about the entire concept of the project, from start to finish. As Klaus Korn and Walter Bergmeier of the Staff Foundation state, "Richard Serra has created a sculpture...which at once integrates into nature and is set apart from it."

About the author (1999)

Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1939. While in college, he supported himself by working in steel mills. His work, which stems from minimalist beginnings in the 60s and has been exhibited and permanently installed around the world, is famous for a physicality compounded by breathtaking size and weight. Serra lives in New York and Nova Scotia.
