Essay
Our sheet is part of the work group 'Location-Series', in which the artist examines the relation between word and object. These drawings are so important as they are among the few works that the artist actually executed himself. The handwritten words both describe and define the position of the shapes on the page, while the shapes themselves delineate where the words rest. Just as the shapes overlap and intermingle, so too do the descriptions contained within them merge and flow in and around each other.
