A crucial figure in Conceptual Art, Lawrence Weiner has long pursued inquiries into language and the process of art-making. The artist defined art as “the relationship of human beings to objects and of objects to objects in relation to human beings”, a premise that defines the core of his own work to date. Weiner touches on the unending diversity of cultural and physical phenomena and examines verbal characters, graphic elements and punctuation as a means of overriding conventions, hierarchies and borders, producing works that are simple and complex at the same time, while always challenging viewers to reconsider their conception of the world.
