Louisiana Edition with the work Offshore (abalone season) by the American artist Doug Aitken. In addition to powerful photographic works, the artist also creates large-scale video and film-based works with both sound and image, all of which are civilizational stories that bring us close to metropolitan nomads as well as distant destinations.
It was with the work Electric Earth at the Venice Biennale in 1999 that Doug Aitken (born 1968) had his breakthrough as an artist. The work depicts the artist's home town of Los Angeles at night - but not documentary, rather suggestive as if you were on a walk through the city with the artist or the main character of the work.
About Louisiana Editions
The Louisiana Edition is original graphics, created directly for Louisiana by artists who have exhibited at the museum in recent years and are all represented in the museum's collection. These are obvious collector's items.
When Louisiana celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008, a number of the artists who have exhibited at the museum were asked to create a graphic work that could then be sold to support Louisiana. The series has since been continuously expanded.
The works are produced in limited editions (most in editions of 30) and priced in accordance with the artists themselves, who have generously wanted to support Louisiana, as the proceeds from the series will go uncut for new purchases for the museum's collection. The works are unframed unless otherwise stated.
