"After a while, some verbs made themselves known, intrinsic movements in Carin Ellberg s artworks, formulated in her dialect: Flowing Hanging Wavering Growing. They are often articulated in series and variations. A certain melancholy coolness prevails there, with undercurrents of laconic absurdism. Together this forms a highly personal rock matrix but it still allows us to read more general contexts, like the core samples of geologists." This is the beginning of Peter Cornell's evocative text about the Swedish artist Carin Ellberg. The artist's book is the fruit of many years of work with her archive from which the artist has chosen images that represent the breadth and depth of her oeuvre in over 200 colour illustrations. Designed by Sandra Praun and Oscar Guermouche, the book also comprises an interview by Maria Lind.
