Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) was an abstract pioneer who eschewed representational painting as early as 1906. Her radical spiritual imagery strives to provide insights into the different dimensions of existence.
Besides Hilma af Klint’s important and radical abstract paintings, she left behind a plethora of notebooks and drawings. Taking one of these, A Work on Flowers, Mosses and Lichen, as a starting point, nine contemporary artists were invited to respond to Hilma af Klint and her legacy. Hilma af Klint did not want her works to be seen until several decades after her death.
The artists included in this book are Amy Sillman, Cecilia Edefalk, Christine Ödlund, Eva Löfdahl, Fredrik Söderberg, Helen Mirra, Karl Holmqvist, Rebecca Quaytman, Sophie Tottie.
Published alongside an exhibition at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, 16 February – 26 May 2013.
