Long's artistic oeuvre is characterised by a direct integration of the landscape, his own physical presence and movement, and the incorporation of time as a fourth dimension. In this display all the prints created by Long between 1970 and 2013 are being exhibited together.
Curator Dr. Brigitte Kölle
Richard Long (* 1945 in Bristol) is a leading exponent of Land Art. The internationally acclaimed British artist has participated in the documenta in Kassel several times and has received many major awards, including the Turner Prize in 1989 and the Praemium Imperiale in 2009. For over 40 years he has been creating outdoor artworks throughout the world, using the movement of his own body, the act of walk- ing through different landscapes, as the scale and medium for his art.
Richard Long creates temporary sculptures in the landscape, which he then photographs before leaving them exposed to the elements or the tides. The materials used, such as stones, pebbles or driftwood, are found in situ and assembled by him into distinct geometric forms such as circles, lines or ellipses. Long’s artistic oeuvre – encom- passing sculpture, painting, photography and printmaking – is characterised by a direct integration of the landscape, his own physical presence and movement, and the incorporation of time as a fourth di- mension.
In this display, which is a cooperation between Kurhaus Kleve and the Hamburger Kunsthalle, all the prints created by Richard Long between 1972 and 2013 are being exhibited together for the first time.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog raisonné of prints (German/English) by Richard Long from 1972-2013, available from the museum shops for 24,50 Euro
The exhibition is a collaboration with the Museum Kurhaus Kleve and the New Art Gallery, Walsall / England.
