Conceptual artist Daniel Buren has produced his signature regular coloured stripes for five decades. His body of work is dedicated to integrating the visual surface with architectural space, and most notably finds place outside the gallery space on historical or landmark buildings. Burens particular method of abstract minimalism thus characterises his works as modulations of space in which colour, contrast, situation, and inventiveness come together in an expressive vocabulary of temporality and spatial plasticity. This exhaustive retrospective volume, published on the occasion of a solo exhibition at the Kamel Mennour Galerie in Paris, paints a fascinating portrait of the artist through the years.
