ONE SHAPE, ONE SQUARE, ONE EXECUTION, ONE TRANSCENDENCE consolidates three quotations from the writings by the minimalist artist and philosopher Ad Reinhardt. The works in question are “Abstract Painting, Sixty by Sixty Inches Square”, “On Negation” and “There is just one painting”, a fragment of which has been taken as a work title. The text “On Negation” is turned into sound and used to cause the vibration of the black square plane that has the same dimensions as “Abstract Painting” by Ad Reinhardt.
