ALL’APERTO – Dan Graham

Mirror Landscape weaves together a rich documentation on the design, construction and installation of Two Way Mirror / Hedge Arabesque, the pavilion created by Dan Graham for ALL’APERTO, with a wider overview on the relationship between artwork, viewer and landscape, which runs through the entire production of the artist.

The book (Mousse Publishing, 2015, 80 pp.) includes a preface by Anna Zegna, an extensive introduction by Andrea Zegna and a lively conversation between Dan Graham, Barbara Casavecchia and Joseph Grima, founder of the Space Caviar studio in Genoa and co-curator of the 2015 Chicago Architecture Biennale. Accendete il condizionatore – tra Dan Graham, Barbara Casavecchia e Joseph Grima, fondatore dello studio Space Caviar di Genova e co-curatore della Biennale di Architettura di Chicago del 2015. “My pieces are for children’s enjoyment, like a funhouse, and a photo opportunity for parents”, explains Graham, while talking about architecture, conceptual art, country & western music, museums, botanical garden and the importance of holding hands.

The volume contains also two special “chapters”: a documentary section on 5 pavilions en plein air selected by the artist, and the long essay as Garden Theater as Museum (1989), translated here in Italian for the first time.
