Book launch: “A Selection of Unrealized Sculpture for the Small Pocket or A Pocket Book of Thoughts in Three Dimensions”

Artist: Marianne Vierø

You are warmly invited to the festive launch of Marianne Vierø’s latest artist book “A Selection of Unrealized Sculpture for the Small Pocket or A Pocket Book of Thoughts in Three Dimensions”, published by Page Not Found.

Documenting the unrealized and collapsing time, the publication weaves together images and text in a volume that balances between potential and loss. Setting askew the relationship between classic elements such as format, page numbers and font size this publication is modest in size but permeated by grand gestures.

Marianne Vierø works with installation, sculpture and print in a process driven by equal parts intuition and analysis. She investigates existing premises and hidden biases in our systems of understanding and considers the transformative potential of materials, methods and gestures. Taking inspiration from the structures of language her practice involves a continuous process of translation that places her work in a constant state of becoming.

Marianne Vierø lives and works in Copenhagen and studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam. She was a resident at Triangle Arts, NYC, 2011; the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, 2008-2009; and at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (D) in 2007. Selected solo exhibitions include ‘Drawing Nude’ and ‘Figure Bold’ both at Rita Urso Gallery, Milan (IT); ‘Dunk’ and ‘Great Transformation’ at Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam (NL); and ‘Zeppelin Bend’ at PAKT, Amsterdam (NL). Her work is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

This event is part of Hoogtij #70.

This is a free event.
