A Leaf Shapes the Eye
Through hundreds of images, this artist’s book follows the work of Daniel Steegmann Mangrané in chronological order from his earliest sculptures in 1997 to his most recent installations of 2022 in the centerfold, before immediately beginning the same journey in reverse, arriving back in 1997 in the final pages, creating a cycle that can be started anew. Loose inside the book are facsimiles of his annotations and sketches, offering a unique introduction to the artist’s universe.
This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition A Leaf Shapes the Eye by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, 31 March – 10 September 2023, and MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, 27 October 2023 – 19 May 2024.
