About The Work

Famed Conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner's text-based works activate their surroundings with enigmatic phrasing set in his characteristic block text. Visually simplistic yet conceptually adept, the envisioning of a purpose or notion is essential, Weiner has said he believes the viewer must complete his work by viewing it; the act of seeing imbues his instructions with meaning. In this splashy yellow and pink rug work, Lost in Space, Weiner’s playful line and text juxtaposition reads “lost in space,” a cheeky nod to the object’s intended purpose.
