CARL ANDRE: THINGS IN THEIR ELEMENTS
Carl Andre (born 1935), is among the foremost exponents of minimalism. Although best known for his grid-based floor sculptures, his output is diverse, encompassing large, outdoor public artworks and small sculptures, poetry and installations.
Alistair Rider explores the full range of Andre's ideas and materials extending from his controversial configurations of bricks to numerous metals, wood and even hay bales. Rider shows how Andre, fascinated by the raw materiality of things in the everyday world, transforms them into sites of contemplation and aethetic focus.
