Karl Chilcott

Percipi Arte Library


This is a series of art books I edit with my publishing house Percipi with focus on my Art in Nature projects at different places of the world mostly together with my daughter Christine Chilcott as the photographer.


The Last Stop


For a long time Ireland had been the last stop for many people leaving the old Europe, emigrating to the new world. But these coasts were also the last stop for many monks searching for God and a deeper meaning to life, a landscape with a spirit and a message.

This book presents a meeting between spaces. Sculptures and installationes by Karl Chilcott present themselves threw photographes by Christine Chilcott. Passing moments of art in nature captured within a frame.

an old landscape,
Foating boarders,
Nature and culture,
changing all the time.

to earth,
to trees,
to culture
and back again.

Jarðarteikn


The nature of Iceland looks as though it had been created for a picture. One might think that made my work easier - certainly it was more rewarding - but the challange lay in finding a balance between the art work and the breathtaking atmosphere in order to create a symbiosis rather than a competition.
Christine Chilcott
Photographer
Jarðarteikn made me feel like a wizard, enchanting, but also enchanted by the vast Nature of Iceland and the echo inside myself.

The New Found Land


The Land of Barrens.
At the very tip of the Bay de Verde Peninsula of Newfoundland. For my daughter Christine and me it became in July 2014 The New Found Land. Clearness from the deep of the cold blue sea Life from the sounds of the whales and the sea birds Loneliness coming from the Cliffs and the old walls Silence from the grey Hills and the stone fields. We want to invite you sharing our Art experience in Meagreness with an idea of the German philosopher Theodor Adorno: “If the language of nature is silent, art tries to express this silence.” With our book we want to support reconciliation between human and nature. Christine took the pictures on my Art in Nature installations.

Dream land


In the Aboriginal belief it is important to tell The Land you are coming: “We are from the other side of the world where the sun shines from the South and the winter is cold and dark, coming in peace with open mind and empty hands for creating Art in Nature, considering The Land as a Borrowed landscape, using thankfully dead or burnt branches, stones, coloured sands, flowers, bones, leaves, moss, feathers, water, shadows and lights from the places and reconstructing them immediately after having taken some pictures.” Please

Floating Rocks



(releas in summer 2017)
I want to invite you to follow me to old Viking Land, walking and creating Art in Nature and expressing the spirit of these amazing landscapes, in my own experiences and reflections. For one month I had my residency in the old yellow house owned of Anna Moss at the end of the way in the little village Skarvanes, on the Faroe Island Sandoy together with my daughter Christine - the photographer. Be our guests in Celebrating Nature.
