One Thing to Another

Situated works for Buren’s solo exhibition in Lisson Gallery in London from November 2011 to January 2012.

A display of three site-specific works closely linked to colour and light. A pergola with a clear roof was covered with filters which projected their colours on the ground. A horizontal suspended frame around the perimeter of the room held a succession of coloured Plexiglas panels (blue, yellow, red and green). The light from the skylight cast delicate coloured shadows on the walls. At night, electric lighting took over. Situated works were installed in the other rooms, new pieces using woven fibre optics linked to white or coloured electroluminescent diodes. When they were turned on, the diodes coloured the work and lit up the space; when they were turned off, the pieces looked like plain white canvas.
