UM 5 ECKEN (Around 5 Corners)
Jochen Kienbaum (Ed.)
Zürich-born artist Beat Zoderer (b. 1955), has long chosen to work outside of the parameters of modernist greats such as Max Bill and others. His materials of choice are often familiar, sourced from the general hardware store and kept in tact when used to fabricate his sculptures and wall works. The pieces often embrace repetitive geometric forms which are accentuated by his easy use of bright colors. The new 2017 release from the Kienbaum Artists Book series is a very special book in a box designed by Zoderer. Featured are his newest works of interspersed pentagons. The box is filled with 76 sheets of brilliantly printed color forms each printed sheets of velum and interspersed with poems by Klaus Merz. The sheets are folded and tied together with cord creating a wonderful artist object and book. Zoderer had a solo show the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2013 and continues to exhibit internationally.
