_

Larry Bell , né en 1939 à Chicago, est une figure majeure de l’art contemporain. Son oeuvre explore la lumière et sa perception. Photographies, sculptures et dessins forment un corpus dont la richesse est étonnante. [...] La perception périphérique est au centre de ses recherches, le verre devenant peu à peu son matériau privilégié. La réflexion et l’opacité possibles de cette matière lui permettent d’inventer des processus afin de créer des objets sculpturaux qui déjouent les frontières entre les catégories établies de la peinture et de la sculpture.

(…) Between Art, Architecture and Science-Fiction, the art of Florian Claar is noteworthy for the approach of geometrical patterns and continuous surfaces, but moreover for the production’s quality of the pieces. We can notice in each of his works the precision and the highly detailed finition that bring those scultpures to reality from the nano scale to thehuman scale. On his website you can see, for some project, a well documented part on the building process.” (…)

A popular joke of the period was that, like the British economy of 1951, “It had no visible means of support”.

What is the architect doing?
He is by the riverside
What is he thinking out there?
He is committing egocide
Now isn’t that a strange thing?
Well to him it feels just
Well we guess a person’s gotta do,
What a person feels he must

He said:
I won’t throw myself from the pier
I’m gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when the year is over I’ll reappear
And have a solution
I’ve reason to believe that what I find
Is gonna change the face of human kind
And all these years before well I was blind
That’s my conclusion
Cause I’m the architect
Cause I’m the architect
Cause I’m the architect
