The Reinvention of Forms

Fragmenting bodies, architecture and nature, Bjerre-Poulsen reinvents the forms around him as luminous images, creating intimate and enigmatic juxtapositions that invite the viewer to look again and imagine what lies beyond the frame. A trained architect, Bjerre-Poulsen brings to life his understanding of tactility, minimalism and detail by anchoring his still life series around a recurring motif of spherical shapes and through rendering each image in exquisite black and white tonalities.

Alongside the mesmerizing aesthetics of the photographic work, The Reinvention of Forms also includes interpretations of Bjerre-Poulsen’s practice from his close friends and collaborators, including an introduction by the seminal Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa and a short fictional story by prize-winning Danish author Thomas Rydahl.

Specifications: Offset printed in tritone. Hardcover and clothbound in Italian textile. Linen thread bound. Debossed tip-in image on front and back cover with debossed titles in white foil. The book comes hand-packaged with a limited edition 32 x 24 cm. black/white print (unframed) and is available in two colors. First edition limited to 1.400 copies.

The Reinvention of Forms is now available for purchase in two colors through New Mags.
