One, Some, Many: 3 Shows by Carsten Höller

Carsten Holler
National Gallery of Canada
18 × 23 × 2 cm

Carsten Höller’s extraordinary artistic production is reflected in this remarkable publication. Documenting three exhibitions, one of which is a world premiere, it presents each exhibitions within its own book, the whole ingeniously bound together within a single binding, thereby making this volume the most comprehensive and stimulating inquiry into Höller’s career to date. Known for his interactive installations, such as the enormous slides he created for Tate Modern, Höller responds to the industrial spaces of the National Gallery’s Shawinigan site with moments of genuine transformation for the viewer. The essayists examine key aspects to Höller’s practice: the role of doubt and wonder as seen through Histories of The Laboratory of Doubt, his interest in the nature of public gatherings as seen through Amusement Park, and the communication between species as seen through The Belgian Problem, a complex new installation involving live starlings, which required the assistance of zoos, wildlife specialists and the Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources. Carsten Höller holds a doctorate in biology and he uses his training as a scientist in his work, exploring our relationship with and our perception of the world around us. In English and French.
