Gordon Matta-Clark

Reappropriating the abandoned, literal negative space of downtown New York, Gordon Matta-Clark interveened in the architecture of buildings. With conical cuts and clefts, Matta-Clark’s form of “Anarchitecture” was radical and grand, suggesting the holes in society and the impermanence of our surroundings. Along with Laurie Anderson and Trisha Brown, Matta-Clark’s work is now showing at the Barbican’s Pioneers of the Downtown Scene, New York in the 1970’s.
