Full Description

Pål Vigeland has worked as a metal artist for nearly 50 years. Everything he has ever made, from jewelry and plates to public commissions and sculptures, has always been characterized by precision and stringency. This book shows the continuities between Vigeland’s earliest years and the present, while also exploring many of the surprising changes that have taken place along the way.

The intricate production methods that underlie Pål Vigeland’s latest works in tin are difficult to comprehend when standing in front of the finished pieces. Consequently, one major contribution to this book are Guri Dahl’s photographs of the artist at work. Her many close-ups allow us to zoom in on the constructive processes and appreciate how exacting and time-consuming they really are.

This book accompanies an exhibition at the Galleri Langegården, Bergen (NO), 21 May to 16 June 2019.

Text in English and Norwegian.
