Artist Lawrence Weiner spoke with PLANE—SITE in the eighth video of a series leading up to the GAA Foundation's Time-Space-Existence exhibition, planned as a collateral exhibition of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
In the short, four-minute video the conceptual artist focuses on the accessibility of his work, which has often ventured outside of the gallery to occupy parts of the city. Consisting primarily of words and phrases, his art expolores the potential for language as an art form over figural and abstract paintings and sculptures. One is reminded of a major piece opening at The Shed in Hudson Yards next year: a site-specific work that spells out "IN FRONT OF ITSELF" in front of the building's movable enclosure.
ABOUT THE INTERVIEW SERIES
PLANE—SITE is producing a new series of videos, featuring protagonists from within the global architecture discourse. The video series will be exhibited in Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora as part of the GAA Foundation's Time-Space-Existence exhibition, opening in May 2018. World-Architects is serving as media partner for the Time-Space-Existence video series, which will see at least one new video per month until the exhibition's opening. The interview series has been made possible with the support of the European Cultural Centre.
