Peter Von Tiesenhausen : Songs for Pythagoras: Includes a Record - (Hardcover)
About this item
The exquisite craftsmanship that has gone into the fabrication of this career monograph underscores the very nature of the artistic practice. For Peter von Tiesenhausen, the landscape of Alberta has been a primary source of inspiration, with sustainability being a constant thread that has woven its way through his work over the course of his long career. Most often working with natural materials such as wood, ice and the land itself, von Tiesenhausen has also incorporated discarded industrial materials such as wire cabling, glass and metal sheeting into his work. Addressing ideas of time, life, nature and re-generation, he engages audiences with issues related to extraction, production and our impact on the environment. As well as providing a thorough overview of von Tiesenhausen’s career, this largely hand-crafted publication showcases a work made especially for the exhibition: a constructed environment that transports the viewer out of the familiar and into an immersive environment of both sight and sound. Each copy of the publication contains an audio disk and is hand finished and personalized by the artist.
