A.R. Penck. The Northern Darkness

Beginning with a brief note by A.R. Penck on his ideas of space and sculpture, the first section of The Northern Darkness consists of Penck’s line drawings of shifting spatial forms. Following is an interview from 1986 on the occasion of the artist’s show stretching across three galleries in Ireland and Scotland. The exhibition publication closes with a scribbled note from Penck, presumably self-descriptive: “The workman has decided to think about something but he doesn’t know about what.”
