OUTDOOR ART: EXTRAORDINARY SCULPTURE PARKS AND ART IN NATURE. Silvia Langen. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2015. 208 pp. with 148 col. ills. 31 x 25 cm. LC 2014-959775 ISBN 9783791381183 In English.
Publisher's description: This book offers an astonishing glimpse beyond the garden walls of some of today's most innovative art spaces around the world -- sculpture parks and art situated in nature. From Edward James's surreal sculpture garden Las Pozas in Mexico to Anselm Kiefer's sprawling studio complex in the French countryside, artists and art collectors are creating outdoor spaces in order to display sculpture and art that is both transformative and powerful. This book is filled with breathtaking photographs of 25 of these spaces from throughout the world -- many of which are not open to the public. Captured in brilliant color, these spaces are populated by works that both enhance and are enhanced by the landscape: rolling hills, mountain lakes, shaded canyons, and empty deserts. Readers will discover Anish Kapoor's startling red steel tube draped across the rolling hills of New Zealand and an enormous pumpkin created by Yayoi Kusama, which sits on a pier overlooking Japan's Seto Inland Sea. Each park's concept is based on a unique theme or idea, and some of these spaces invite contemplation both spiritual and scientific, while others blend horticultural elements with manmade objects.
