About the work
Domino, 2003, by Lawrence Weiner. Edition of 70, accompanied by a separate piece of cardboard numbered and signed by the artist. A wooden box contains a series of dominoes in aluminium, serigraph printed with some of the words that feature in Lawrence Weiner's work. Using words such as INCUBUS, REVERSED, HIGH, LOW, DRY, FORWARD and WAVES, anyone can create their own personal work by one of the masters of contemporary American art, all while playing a game of dominoes.
About the artist
Lawrence Weiner is one of the great masters of conceptual art. Since the 1960s, he has transformed the sense of what we perceive as art through provocative and ironic works that are profound, yet easily accessible. In 1968, he declared: (1) The artist may construct the piece (2) The piece may be fabricated (3) The piece may not be built and went on to transform his work into a collection of words used as materials, in the same way that other artists use canvas, clay or pencil. Lawrence Weiner's installations consist exclusively of words, in a recognizable font, painted on a wall. ONE QUART EXTERIOR GREEN INDUSTRIAL ENAMEL THROWN ON A BRICK WALL and EARTH TO EARTH ASHES TO ASHES DUST TO DUST, for example, describe an action to be performed or a process to be carried out, whereas AS LONG AS IT LASTS and TO SEE AND TO BE SEEN are open to broader, more personal interpretations. Lawrence Weiner has exhibited at museums including: Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Barcelona (2013); Jewish Museum, New York (2012); Whitney Museum, New York (2007); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2008); Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Wolfsburg (2000); Museum Ludwig, Cologne (1995); and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (1994). Lawrence Weiner has participated in documenta V (1972), VI (1977), VII (1982), and XIII (2012) and in the Venice Biennale international art exhibition (in 1972, 1984, 2003 and 2013).
