Te Tuhirangi Contour (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Located on the Kaipara Harbour in New Zealand, 45 km north of Auckland, Te Tuhirangi Contour is one of Richard Serra's largest site-specific works. The site is a vast open grass pasture with rolling hills and the fall and rise of the land establishes curvilinear contours. The sculpture is located on one continuous contour, at a length of 257m (843'2"). The particular contour was chosen for its location, differentiation, contraction and expansion in relation to the volume of the landscape. The elevation of the sculpture is perpendicular to the fall of the land and thereby generates its lean of 11 degrees. This book thoroughly documents Richard Serra's impressive sculpture in Dirk Reinartz's elegant black-and-white photography.

Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1939. While in college he supported himself by working in steel mills. His work, which stems from minimalism in the 1960s, is famous for a physicality compounded by breathtaking size and weight and has been exhibited extensively throughout the world. He has created numerous permanent site-specific sculptures in public and private venues. Serra lives in New York and Nova Scotia. Steidl has previously published two of Serra's books, Sculpture 1985-1998 and Torqued Spirals, Toruses and Spheres. Dirk Reinartz, born 1947 in Aachen, Germany, was Professor of Photography at Muthesius-Hochschule in Kiel. He had been documenting Serra's work for over 25 years. He died in 2004.
