For the creation of this new « statement », Lawrence Weiner decided to liberate himself from the direct printing on the wall in order to lead the spectator towards a new relationship to his linguistic proposition.

For this major figure of conceptual art, Form of Difficulty occupies a particular part in his recent production. Created on a textile medium with embroidered letters, Form of Difficulty offers a dual reading to the eye. It is both a sculpture which we can read and activate, and a perfectly realized “painting”. Through the use of traditional embroidering techniques, each word requires a plasticity which the artist had never achieved, conferring the multiple (12 copies) an exceptional status.

Weiner (Lawrence)


Considered as one of the fathers of American conceptual art, Lawrence Weiner has been developing since the late 1960’s a unique practice in which the work incarnates itself fully into the topicality of the monstration space. This play with, and within language has recently taken a new dimension. Always attentive to graphics, to dimensions, to colors and to punctuation in his interventions, Lawrence Weiner considers his works as sculptures which interpolate directly within the spectator's imagination: “The sculpTure is in the words themselves.”
