American conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner is known for his language-based sculpture and work exploring the relationship between art, artist, and viewer. In this new short film from the Time‑Space-Existence series, he discusses the relationship between people and material objects, language as a gesture, and making art accessible to the public.
Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, this video series features interviews with prominent architects and artists reflecting on the topics of TIME SPACE EXISTENCE. These three concepts sketch out the contours of the world around us — a fact especially true within architecture. Taking these words as its starting point, the GAA Foundation is set to curate its fourth collateral exhibition in the context of La Biennale di Venezia Architettura, entitled Time-Space-Existence and opening in May 2018. Featuring over 100 established and emerging architects, and unapologetically international in breadth, the exhibition provides a fascinating complement to a biennial traditionally drawn along national lines.
This interview series has been made possible with the support of the European Cultural Centre.
