The reference monograph on the work of artist Agnes Denes, this profusely illustrated book aslo gathers an extensive selection of the artist’s texts and manifestos. Born in 1938 in Budapest, Denes lived in Stockholm from the age of nine, before spending her teenage years, from 1954 on, in New York, where she still lives and works today. Since the late 1960s, Agnes Denes has combined a conceptual approach to drawing and printmaking with interventions in the natural and urban environment, which were altogether pioneering in terms of her ecological origins and scope. “Although I deal with difficult concepts, my work remains visual. The process of ‘visualization’ is double important since aspects of the work explore invisible systems, underlying structures, and patterns inherent in our existence,” Denes said in 1978. This catalogue provides incontrovertible evidence to the statement.
