Description for the presentation 2016-2017 in the National Museum of Modern Art

For more than half a century, Mondrian’s “Pier and Ocean” series of drawings of 1914-15 has served as a key reference point for French artist François Morellet. With the installation Pier and Ocean, created in collaboration with Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata, Morellet pays warm tribute to the Dutch painter. The tension between Kawamata’s wooden jetty, which reinforces the immersive character of the work, and the abstraction of Morellet’s composition of neon tubes, whose co-ordinated on-and-off recalls the movement of the sea, lends a very special quality to the whole.
