The Magdalena Abakanowicz exhibition at the
National Museum in Krakow was an overview of her work from the 1960s to
the beginning of this century, covering selected works from her enormous
output. At one and the same time, the show made it possible to look at
this distinguished artist's work from today's perspective.
Catalog, created for the exhibition – a kind of renewal – included not
only a presentation of works shown at the National Museum, but also
different ways of seeing her rich ouvre.
The characteristic feature of Abakanowicz's art is the texture of her
sculptures. We decided to reflect this appearance in our book. We went
for brown cloth for the cover, ivory paper for the inside and thick
grayish rough box to achieve the feel and the color.
