Previously featured at Thisispaper, London-based design studio Zak Group created a catalogue that accompanied the solo exhibition Walhalla by Anselm Kiefer, a German painter and sculptor.
Elegantly bound in cloth, the publication is conceived as a walk through the central, lead-covered corridor and adjoining galleries of White Cube, the spot where Walhalla took place.
"A sequence of specially commissioned photographs depict the artist's transformation of the galleries into dark caverns lit by bare light bulbs. Metal hospital beds covered with lead blankets, a rusted spiral staircase and arsenal of decaying artifacts are shown in first person perspective. A series of sculptures and paintings are shown in their entirety next to material details of splattered lead, oil, acrylic, emulsion, shellac and clay,” described the designers.
