tent. Los Angeles, Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery, 05-11-2016, 07-01-2017. - Groepstentoonstelling onderzoekt de wisselwerking tussen woord en object aan de hand van de sculptuur Pense-Bète van de Belgische kunstenaar Marcel Broodthaers. - The selection of works offers a poetic investigation into the intersection of words and objects. Inspired by Marcel Broodthaers’ 1964 sculpture Pense-Bête in which the artist took the unsold copies of one of his books of poetry and encased them in plaster creating an object that literally solidified poetry into a concrete form, Concrete Islands posits the question: where does language end and the world begin? With works by Marcel Broodthaers, Joseph Beuys, Henri Chopin, Irma Blank, Alighiero Boetti, Mark Leckey, Jean-Luc Moulène, Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, Michael Dean, Michael E. Smith, Jimmie Durham, Bas Jan Ader, Mark Manders, Robert Filliou, Martin Boyce, and Dom Sylvester Houédard
