About

** This piece is no longer on display. Please see our Retired Public Art Installations page for more information.

These sculptures by Bernar Venet are precisely as described by the title: beams of steel rolled into 235.5 and 232.5 degree arcs. Throughout his career, Venet works to defined art and to separate himself from the idea that art is the expression of the artist. For him the most important element in the work of art is the concept or idea involved. In his recent work, Venet creates works based on mathematical graphs and formulas. In mathematics, Venet discovered a language of symbols that satisfied his desire to create an art that in non-expressive and not subject to personal interpretation.
