Close readings of ’Never Tired of Looking at Each Other – Only the Mountain and I’, 2012

book as sculpture

An intimate view into a book published in 2012 by the Pavilion in Beijing and Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin. The book presents material collected on a journey from 21 to 24 February 2011, when Eliasson and a group of collaborators – writer Hu Fang, gallerist Zhang Wei, choreographer and dancer Steen Koerner, organisers Lu Jia and Anna Engberg-Pedersen, graphic designers Huang Shan and Huang He, artists Julian Charriere and Thilo Frank, film documentarist Tomas Gislason, and landscape architect Günter Vogt – explored the Master of Nets Garden and the Lingering Garden, two scholar’s gardens in Suzhou, China, just outside of Shanghai, as models for physical movement, duration, rhythm, and sequencing. One product of the journey was this book, edited by Anna Engberg-Pedersen / Studio Olafur Eliasson, Hu Fang, Huang Shan, and Lu Jiu, Beijing / London.
