From the Publisher. Size intrigues when it appears atypical. The greater the size distinction in a work, the stronger the magnetism, which forces us to hold our gaze in order to assimilate the particulars, make sense of the work, and have it lodged in our minds. Profiling 40 artists known for their monumental sculptures and installations around the world, OVERS!ZE investigates how size functions as a delightful tool to make a statement, break the routine, or shrink us—taking us back to a time where everything else was much larger than us. In the interview section, we speak to some of the world’s most active big thinkers, such as Kurt Perschke (U.S.), Inges Idee (Germany), Max Streicher (Canada), and Florentijn Hofman (the Netherlands) to find out how they perceive space, public space, and the merits of scaling up art.
