Per Bak Jensen: Books and Catalogs

Thursday 1 October – Sunday 25. October 2020
ARoS, level 3


I believe that, inside, we all carry a big picture, and in our thoughts and work we catch glimpses of this big picture. The big picture is the sum of who one is, what one believes in, and the one one wants to be. Therefore, one should be recognized by one’s pictures as they tell the inexpressible.

Per Bak Jensen, Stedernes Væsen(The Being of Places), 1993
