Bruce Nauman makes use of different media to interrogate human beings’ relationship to the world. This sculpture is one of the first objects he ever made. Rejecting the rectangularity of Minimalist forms for the “Anti-Form” Robert Morris would champion in his Artforum article of 1968, Nauman shifts the emphasis onto the material. A novelty in sculpture, his use of fibreglass and resin allows him to experiment with transparency and opacity. This assemblage of two hollow mouldings of irregular, “hand-made” appearance combined with the use of coloured pigment exemplifies the highly experimental character of Nauman’s work.
