Lawrence Weiner Fondation Venet
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
This summer, the Venet Foundation is pleased to present a new installation by Lawrence Weiner.
The new piece is adapted to a visit that is solely focused on the outdoor areas in response to the exceptional health measures that have been put in place. Conceived for the site, the statement Lawrence Weiner has come up with for the Venet Foundation is installed inside the long glass-walled gallery, yet is completely visible from the sculpture park. Weiner’s statement has become a prominent part of the park display.
Visitors will discover or rediscover the work making up the sculpture park, including monumental pieces by artists represented in the collection, such luminaries as Tony Cragg, Sol LeWitt and Richard Deacon.
The statement reads, as follows, in both English and French: ⠀
Flotsam + Jetsam + Tar + Moonstone ⠀
