Lot Essay

“A pedestrian space was literal and flat-footed and everyday. The idea was to have the work right along with everything else in the world, not upon a spatial pedestal. The term also involves the idea of utility–that a sculpture was there to be engaged actively, and it had utopian glimmerings of art and life happily co-habiting.” (F. Sandback, Some Remarks on My Sculpture 1966-1986, Mannheim, 1986, p. 24)
