Overview

Famed for his works of physicality compounded by breathtaking size and weight, Richard Serra is one of the artists at the forefront of contemporary sculpture. He has exhibited extensively throughout the world and has created numerous permanent site-specific sculptures in public and private venues. This book accompanies Serra's sculpture project Dirk's Pod, one of the artist's major site-specific works realised in the last few years, and conceived for the Novartis Campus in Basel/Switzerland. Serra dedicated this sculpture to his friend of many years, the photographer Dirk Reinartz who died in Spring 2004. Reinartz had documented the entire production process of the sculptural elements in a series of magnificent photographs included in this book. Installation photographs and views of the finished sculpture were made by Nic Tenwiggenhorn.
