CLIENT: Fondation Cartier
Exploding the walls that divide the media, Gary Hill digs into questions of perception and meaning in complex and challenging ways that always place the viewer inside an undeniable situation of presence and physicality. Making use of an array of elements and layered meaning, he has created two new large-scale works for his solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Gary Hill puts the notion of value into perspective—its significance, its ambiguity, the value of art as well as of money—through works that question our systems of thought and our symbolic construction of the world.
On the real gold bar in the center of the oil lake it is written: “For everything which is visible is a copy of that which is hidden”
