Contemporary Sculptures

Kistefos, Norway’s preeminent home for contemporary sculpture since the late nineteen-nineties, offers globally-recognized artworks in a spectacular and atmospheric rural setting. The museum’s principal purpose is to preserve and develop what is today a technical and industrial monument of national importance. This book is the museum’s first major publication about its collection and not only documents works by artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Tony Cragg and Lynda Benglis, among many others in the collection, but also marks the opening of a new building designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) architects. It offers extensive written and visual material on the beautiful and innovative “twisted bridge” exhibition space that will open to the public in the summer of 2019. The book provides a comprehensive understanding of Kistefos’ history, collection and architecture through essays that are accompanied by specially-commissioned images by renowned photographer Hélène Binet.
