Bloom, Harold (Essay); Introduction by Ealan Wingate
ANSELM KIEFER: Merkaba
NY: Gagosian Gallery, 2002

Large quarto. 120 pp; fully illustrated. Gray cloth with blind-stamped lettering on cover & spine, no jacket as issued. A fine, crisp, unmarked copy. An exhibition of new works by Anselm Kiefer, "Merkaba" is composed of eight large-scale paintings and two monumental sculptures made of concrete and steel. The works are inspired by Kabbalist literature dealing primarily with the afterlife. The Merkaba and Hechaloth literature, as discussed in the Kabbalah texts, deal specifically with the ascent up to seven heavenly palaces or temples, which represent the seven attainments of divine spirituality. For Kiefer, the Merkaba, or mystical chariot used for this passage, is not the vehicle towards a single apocalyptic Judgment Day but, rather, a means to the ongoing process of working at art. Catalogue designed by Bruce Mau Design, Toronto.
