CARL ANDRE, 1970, steel (Sol LeWitt in the background)
This New York minimal artist made his earliest work in wood, later he used stone and metal. With his artistic personality he belonged to the minimal art, in which elementary geometric elements mapped out the spatial notion. His art has an industrial character and consists purely of material, without aesthetic appearance.
The artist always emphasizes the floor, it is considered his flat work surface. He arranges his mathematical structures of similar repetitive shapes within a specific space, so that his work seems to multiply in unlimited floor composition. 26 Steel Rod Run is a sculpture that, just like the rest of his oeuvre, creates an interactive role, changing the perception of the environment. Anyone who sees his work feels the orderly nature within an industrial environment where attention shifts to the potential of the less restrictive horizontal.
