Iceland Homily, 2010 - Lawrence Weiner

About the Work

About Iceland Homily

Interested in the notion of language of art, Weiner's Iceland Homily is a wall installation inscribed with the phrase "along the shore" in both English and Icelandic, enticing the viewer to ponder and, ultimately, to determine its enigmatic meaning.

Lawrence Weiner personalizes the artistic experience of each of his viewers. He believes that his job as the artist is to conceive an idea and possibly produce instructions, but it's the audience who finishes the construction. Starting off as a key artist in the conceptual art movement of the 1960s, he wrote this infamous "statement of intent," which dictates much of his work:

1. The artist may construct the piece.
2. The piece may be fabricated.
3. The piece need not be built.

Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist, the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.

Lawrence Weiner's impressive and extensive resume includes solo exhibitions at the Dia Center for the Arts, the Walker Art Center, the Tate Gallery, the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City, the Hishhorn Museum and Scupture Garden, a retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and many more.Read Less
