Lawrence Weiner was a central figure in the development of conceptual and post-minimal art and began his career in the era of Abstract Expressionism with a series of controlled explosions in fields in California as a method to create sculptural craters. His practise later included paintings, books, statements and instructions and is now characterised by use of language as his primary medium. His show at Blain|Southern Berlin featured large scale wall installation and responded to the building formal life as the printing presses of Der Tagesspiegel newspaper. We used his signature type face and ‘exploded’ arrangement of words as the basis for our invites and printed his text with metallic silver and red pantone inks and clear varnishes on thick duplexed card.
