Ruth Maria Obrist: the poetry of logic

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


There is a trace of timeless arithmetic validity in the work of Ruth Maria Obrist. Her objects and installations explore themes such as mathematics - chaos and order - space, void, proportion, and volume. Over the years, the ocean, too, caught between beauty, destruction and healing, has been a central theme.

Ruth Maria Obrist's works are of a profound materiality. Using bitumen, white glue, mercuchrome, gold or rust, she creates sensory surfaces that - formally reduced to the essential - exude a poetic ease.

This book covers works from the years 2000 to 2021, including some of the numerous projects that Ruth Maria Obrist realised together with architects and in public spaces.

Text in English and German.
