short biography

Lawrence Weiner (1942 born in Bronx / New York) lives in New York. He is one of the main characters of Conceptual art but sees himself as a sculptor rather than a conceptualist. His text sculptures - "language + the material referred to" as he defines it - have appeared in all sorts of places over the last five decades.

Conceptual art, text sculptures, drawings, installations, film, video
