Let us tell you more about this edition

Bernar Venet is a conceptual artist best known for his resourcefulness in a variety of media including drawing, paintings, prints, sculpture, installations, design, music and musical composition, and for his wide range of expression. In the middle of the 1970ies he made the line the central subject of his work. Whereas in a scientific context a line is a clearly defined geometric form, Bernar Venet used this simple geometric form to demonstrate divergent concepts.

My sculpture is based on concepts that appear to be divergent […]: order and disorder, the determinate and indeterminate.” — Bernar Venet

This etching shows the particular importance of the line for the artist. The line is not simply a line, in fact it seems to move, and it looks like a three- dimensional, instable figure. It essentially forces the viewer to follow its course in search for the beginning and the end.
