Description

Untitled. Glass and steel.
Height: 2,5 m.
Artist: Dan Graham, USA.

What role does the onlooker play in his encounter with the work of modern art?
Graham's solution to this question explicitly involves the actual sculptural
structure itself. In his pavilions, with their walls of glass and mirrors, the onlooker
becomes aware of both his physical position and the relationship between this and
the sculptur's transparent and reflective walls, while simuntaneously seeing
himself in the same environment as that which surrounds the work of art itself.

Location: At E10 near the old ferry-quai at Lyngvær.
