► Throughout her thirty-year career Susanne Gottberg has been interested in the interaction between the artwork and the viewer. She often invites viewers to contemplate their own perception, its properties and limitations. For example, when she paints on wooden veneer, the image mingles with the grain of the wood, allowing her to address the possibilities of pictorial representation and to reveal its boundaries.
This book provides an overall view of Gottberg’s art from the different decades. It includes works from the start of her career along with her latest works, plus those she made together with the artist Markus Kåhre. In the texts curator Juha-Heikki Tihinen analyses Gottberg’s art, Susanne Gottberg reviews her own production, and curator Maaretta Jaukkuri presents Gottberg and Kåhre’s joint works.
