Lawrence Weiner is a key figure in Conceptual Art (both in America and internationally). His oeuvre consists chiefly of graphically designed philosophical and political texts on walls in public and private spaces. He considers language to be a fully sculptural material, believing that any linguistic construction can function as a sculpture. Although the content takes priority over the form, both always remain open to interpretation. By no longer putting forward any absolute, imperative meaning, Weiner offers the viewer the freedom to give shape to their own spectrum of imaginary thoughts and associations. His visual, linguistic structures are an open invitation to reflect on how we relate to others and the world.
