One of Switzerland's most promising young artists, Mirko Baselgia has been showing his work for more than a decade and his first solo exhibition was produced in 2013 by the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur. Mirko Baselgia-Primum presents beautifully produced photos of his sculptures alongside a conversation between the artist and Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur director Stephan Kunz. This volume will introduce readers to a body of work that pays particular attention to the choice and combination of different materials. As he transforms these materials into finished pieces, Baselgia merges technical skill with references to architecture, art history, and classical music. In doing so, he creates sculptures that use both form and substance to evoke the individual's relationship to the environment.

Many of Baselgia's pieces add considerable depth to our comprehension of contemporary social and political issues. This book, in turn, will deepen readers' understanding of a thoughtful young artist and his many remarkable works.
Stephan Kunz is the director of the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur in Switzerland.
