Sol LeWitt. Double Negative Pyramid
Double Negative Pyramid
by Sol LeWitt (born 1928) was a significant event in the
history of Europos Parkas. Composed of concrete blocks, the geometrical
structure is 5,6 metres high and 12 metres wide.
established his central position within the Minimal and Conceptual art movements
during the 1960s. The artist tends to call his works “structures”, and not
“sculptures”, “structure” being one of the most important leitmotifs of his
work, the basis of his ideas. The relationships between painting and sculpture,
between two- and three-dimensional projection, between image and object, between
open modular structures and closed forms, are embodied in LeWitt’s work.
Shadows falling from one element to another soften its strict geometry. Daily and seasonal cycles the lighting and moods of nature play the sculpture like a musical composition.
