Dan Flavin at Perrotin

 In > art culture design

An installation of 8 neon works (1963-1990) by minimal master Dan Flavin opened this week at Perrotin. Dan Flavin started making three-dimensional monochromes with mounted or barred fluorescent tubes or light bulbs in 1961 that he referred to as”Icons” (even though he contested any mystical or religious reference in his approach). His installations of infinite combinations transcend Duchampien gestures, radical in essence and minimal in form. These physical experiences of colour and light transformed into matter introduce the presence of the immaterial.
Until Sat 3 Mar.
