"The images of Mikael Olsson are held by the tension between visual faculties and visual conventions, the reality of perception and the reality of vision, of the concrete and the abstract." Péter Nádas

In on | auf the Swedish artist Mikael Olsson undertakes a photographic study of the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron’s and the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s temporary pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London 2012.

By investigating the traces of their creative processes in their archives, and exploring the relation between their pavilion and its shifting contexts, Olsson creates images that follow and go beyond the pavilion as object – visual narratives uncovering issues of memory, identity and perception.

The book includes an essay by the Hungarian writer and photographer Péter Nádas entitled ’Loaned Landscapes, Borrowed Objects. The Real Space of the Image and the Representation of Space in Mikael Olsson’s Photography.’
