In the Seventies, Lawrence Weiner started inscribing his works directly onto the walls of galleries and exhibition spaces. Previously, he had been sending out his work on invitation cards and matchboxes and publishing it in newspapers. For the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Weiner conceived a work that deals with colours and the immateriality of light. He drew his inspiration from the play of the green, yellow, red and violet of the northern lights. Stripes in these colours were applied to each of the enormous walls. The white of the writing on these walls creates the effect of apertures, while the walls themselves seem almost transparent. This fine artist's book devoted to weiner's work shows this project as well as earlier works both inside and in the open air.
