    About The Work

    Considered one of the founders of Conceptual art, Robert Barry's ambition to discard the object of art in order to concentrate on the idea is particularly strong. His interest for questions of perception bring him to the renouncement of visuality. Something in a Box gives the opportunity to replay on another scale—a box made of walnut wood, containing 62 index cards. Each card proposes a different statement by Barry—62 Statements althogether. The first one introduces the following: SOMETHING THAT... and then 61 statements that are supposed to define SOMETHING, the essence of which remains irrevocably unknown.
