Out Of Sight
OUT OF SIGHT is a participatory, interactive, social sculpture by one of the world's top living artists. Taking the form of a giant hopscotch court, populated with fun and provocative phrases, OUT OF SIGHT invites audiences of all ages to see, play, think and be inspired. New York-based Lawrence Weiner specifically created this artwork with the outlook of young people in mind: the stances they take, and the steps they must take as they launch into life.
Lawrence Weiner has been at the forefront of conceptual art since the 1960s. His practice incorporates subtle and imaginative use of text, exceptional, minimalist graphic design, as well as a sophisticated take on the artist's position with respect to the object, the viewer, and the experience of the work.
On display in Singapore for a limited time only, come down to the Civic District where you can see this unique floor sculpture, alongside the many things there are to do and see at National Gallery Singapore and The Arts House.
“A conceptual artist who has made history” – New York Times
OUT OF SIGHT is an interactive 'sculpture' by internationally recognized American conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner. The OUT OF SIGHT marelle (or hopscotch in French) is a curved structure that suggests a fluid and engaged journey of forward motion for participants.
