In the Shadow of the Tree and the Knot of the Earth

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2013

This catalogue was designed for Anish Kapoor’s exhibition ‘In the shadow of the tree and the knot of the earth’ at the Lisson Gallery in London. Instead of representing the sculptures in a traditional catalogue style, the artist’s drawings (absent from the exhibition itself ) are used to set the mood of the publication. The dark and atmospheric drawings form the main content of the 320-page book, pre-empting the sculptural forms present in the exhibition space which emerge as loosely inserted, full-colour photographs of the work.
