Description

Exhibition catalogue published by the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in conjunction with the show held June 27 - September 22, 1985. The catalogue text consists of an interview directed by Pagé. Catalogue design by Lawrence Weiner. Text in French and English.

From the interview:

You call this exhibition “Sculpture”, unlike others which were simply called “Works”. Is this a provocation? Aren't you known as a  “conceptual artist”?

The work refers to and deals with sculptural materials and concepts. The culture has accepted installation, light, sound, etc. as sculpture. Language has now entered the culture as a sculptural material, therefore the terms “works”, “pieces”, etc. are no longer necessary: sculpture is sufficient. What was on[c]e a concept for artists and the culture is now a reality. What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. The subject was roses, not names.
