Description

Kustaa Saksi: Cosmos by Garret Publications invites you on a captivating journey through the artistic legacy of Finnish creator Kustaa Saksi from 2012 to 2023. Based in Amsterdam, Saksi is renowned for his large textile tapestries that explore the essence of the universe through vibrant psychedelia and colorful surrealism. Jussi Puikkonen's photographs immerse you in Saksi's distinctive esthetic, while essays by Jessica Hemmings and Niina Tanskanen unveil the stories behind the artworks. Finished with golden details, the hard-covered book spans 187 pages and is written in English.

Kustaa Saksi has created a unique visual style. Saksi traces recurring patterns of the world by observing natural phenomena, human sensory experiences, and the art and artifacts our culture has produced. With his art he has fabricated his own cosmos, one that is ever growing and expanding. The word cosmos, meaning the universe, is derived from the Greek kosméo, which is linked to expressing an order and arrangement of a particular world with decoration and ornamentation. The very idea of cosmos is at the heart of a designer’s or an artist’s work that aims to create and inhabit a world of its own. ’Cosmos’ looks back at an important chapter in Saksi’s career – his textile art, made between 2012–2023. In his tapestries, he takes us on a journey through transitional, eerie spaces that emerge between the imagined and the real, sleep and wakefulness, madness and sanity.
