Bravura by Per Kirkeby( Book )

29 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans ces écrits des années 1960 à 1980, publiés dans diverses revues de l'époque, Kirkeby livre un regard sur le monde danois, une fenêtre ouverte sur la scène scandinave souvent méconnue du public français. Il évoque sa formation artistique et scientifique, ses expéditions au Groenland et son voyage en pays maya. Il revient sur ses rencontres avec de grands artistes modernes et contemporains comme Poul Gemes ou George Maciunas, fondateur du mouvement Fluxus.0Au fil des textes une pensée s'élabore, aujourd'hui reconnue comme l'une des voix les plus avant-gardistes de sa génération, abordant la peinture, la sculpture, l'architecture, mais aussi la philosophie et le cinéma... Cet ouvrage est publié dans une nouvelle traduction d'Anne Catherine Abecassis à l'occasion de l'exposition de Per Kirkeby aux Beaux-Arts de Paris

Per Kirkeby and the "forbidden paintings" of Kurt Schwitters : retrospective by Per Kirkeby( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Centre for Fine Arts presents a retrospective of the work of Per Kirkeby (born in 1938), one of the key painters of the Danish avant-garde. But just what does avant-garde mean: rupture, minimalism, abstraction, borrowings, subversion? One can find all of those in a prolific body of work that began in the 1960s in the wake of the Fluxus movement. But that is only one aspect of a very diverse oeuvre that draws just as much on the figuration of Danish classicism and the experiments of 19th-century French masters such as Eugene Delacroix. Kirkeby cannot be pigeonholed, nor does he want to be: he prefers to relentlessly question the position and the perceptions of the observer. An artistic process that has seen him turn to different media (canvas, blackboards, paper, bronze, etc.) in an assertion of the freedom he finds, as a trained geologist, in the omnipresence of nature. It is in this context that the Kurt Schwitters room in the exhibition is so relevant
