Bernar Venet (b. 1941, France)
To be able to do things like that after quitting from art… Awe…
I’ve done a couple of works on much smaller scale and of much smaller beauty that have certain resemblance with this.
But it is for his early conceptual works (after which he resigned from art, to come back a few years later) that I wanted to place him on my list – only that I could not find any relevant images. And I was surprised to find plenty of this… monumental, almost minimalist.
I find support to some of my thinking in his avoidance of subjectivity and exploration of the border – or the interface – between art and science.
