About the Artwork

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.

"To be an artist is to ask questions about the very nature of art, to have a creative activity that allows one to ask these questions."

Whereas in a scientific context a line is a clearly defined geometric form, Bernar Venet used this simple geometric form to demonstrate divergent concepts. In the present portfolio “Random Combination of Indeterminate Lines” Bernar Venet masterly illustrates his idea of transposing mathematical concepts and scientific theories into the realm of art. The line is not simply a line, in fact it seems to move, and it looks like a three-dimensional, unstable figure. It essentially forces the viewer to follow its course in search for the beginning and the end.
