Overview

Artist Lawrence Weiner, one of the original conceptual artists who emerged in 1960s America, designed this set of nine wooden blocks in collaboration with the Yvon Lambert Gallery. When arranged or stacked, they create different variations on an equation that proposes a visual deconstruction of the X and Y chromosomes, which typically assign gender through the combinations XX and XY. Limited edition of 1,000 sets.
 
Box: 4-3/4" x 4-3/4" x 1-1/2"
Each block is 1-1/2" on all sides

Details & Dimensions

Designer Info

Lawrence Weiner was one of the original conceptual artists who emerged in America during the 1960s. Born in 1942 in the Bronx in New York City, his art is based on the premise that the idea of a work is more important than its physical reality. Weiner's texts, usually painted or applied directly on the wall, offer alternatives to depiction; they represent physical situations or philosophical concepts. Over the past 30 years, he has sometimes turned to ethical concerns as well. He works in a broad range of media including video, film, books, sound art, performance art, installation art and graphic art.
