Publisher: THAMES & HUDSON Author: L. Weiner, G. Stemmrich Title: WRITTEN ON THE WIND: LAWRENCE WEINER DRAWINGS American Lawrence Weiner began his career as an artist in 1960, travelling across the United States, Mexico and Canada, ultimately landing in Europe. He quite quickly moved away from any conception of art based on the production of objects, instead focusing on the construction of new ways of perceiving language. Today, Weiner works with nearly all media, from books to films, to installations. This volume exhaustively documents his work on paper for the first time. In collaboration with designer Filiep Tacq, Weiner designed an ad hoc work for this volume.
