Lutz Bacher: Snow
HOW DOES a contemporary artist take on the cosmic? Last year, Lutz Bacher dumped hundreds of pounds of smashed coal slag onto the floor of a darkened exhibition hall. She then planted black television sets and shattered mirrors into the piles of soot. There is a single picture of this installation, titled Black Beauty, from 2012, in Snow, the artist’s first major monograph, which covers nearly four decades of her work.
