Nils-Udo : Art in Nature by Nils Udo
Book DescriptionNils-Udo started his artistic career as a painter but whilst working in Paris in the 1960s and in sync with the ideological questionings of the time, he turned his attention from the canvas to the environment. As such, he is one of the early exponents of environmental art, the resonance of which has become increasingly felt over the past few decades. As the technological world increases its hold on everyday life, Nils-Udo returns again and again to nature, in a thoughtful dialogue that requires us to reconsider our relationship with our natural surroundings. Nils-Udo creates structures within a given natural site that serve to highlight the presence of nature: he plants entire fields of wild flowers, constructs giant nests, and hangs curtains of flowers from man-made structures. Details such as a row of brightly-colored leaves demarcating the boundary between earth and melting snow or a displaced bolder emphasizing a notion of permanence alongside its more transient canopy convey a sense of the fragility of life through their ever-changing vistas. The artist's documents and photographs of his work, reproduced in the current volume, do not aim to defeat this emphemerality. Instead they serve as a polgnant reminder of the damage modern civilization is wreaking on our natural environment.
