Jan Dibbets Robin Redbreast's Territory / Sculpture , 1969
Robin Redbreast's Territory feature photographs and topographical surveys, alongside handwritten notes by the artist, which are rendered in three other languages (English, French and German) on the right-hand pages.
After giving up painting in 1967, Jan Dibbets began creating ephemeral installations in nature and taking photographs of them. The act is not an end in itself for the artist: his preoccupation is with preserving the meaning of the work, because ultimately what is important is not the reality of the installation but the idea that inspired it.
Robin Redbreast’s Territory is the 6th book to be published in the Reprint collection curated by Anne Moeglin-Delcroix and Clive Phillpot.
