Product Description

Mirror Landscape weaves together a rich documentation on the design, construction and installation of Two Way Mirror / Hedge Arabesque, the pavilion created by Dan Graham for the sixth edition of “All’Aperto” (Outdoors)—the art event organized by the Fondazione Zegna and curated by Andrea Zegna and Barbara Casavecchia—with a wider overview on the relationship between artwork, viewer and landscape, which runs through the entire production of the artist. The book includes a preface by Anna Zegna, an extensive introduction by Andrea Zegna and a lively conversation between Dan Graham, Barbara Casavecchia and Joseph Grima, founder of the Space Caviar studio in Genoa and co-curator of the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennale. “My pieces are for children’s enjoyment, like a funhouse, and a photo opportunity for parents”, explains Graham, while talking about architecture, conceptual art, country & western music, museums, botanical garden and the importance of holding hands. The volume contains also two special “chapters”: a documentary section on 5 pavilions en plein air selected by the artist, and the long essay as “Garden as Theater as Museum” (1989), translated here in Italian for the first time.
