Under - Peter Johansson


Peter Johansson

‘Under’ is a book commissioned by artist Peter Johansson. In 1989 Johansson cast twenty concrete sculptures. Each sculpture has a different material combined with the concrete, such as metal, sausage, soap, plaster or cheese.


They were buried in Falu Koppargruva, a very large, old mine in central Sweden. Johansson then documented the erosion over a period of years. The book describes the artist's process as well as bringing together imagery, texts and local stories.

Art Direction and Graphic Design by Ritator. Inspired by the process of erosion which took place underground, Ritator created unique book jackets, using acid to remove colour from the bookrum.
