THE GARDINER MUSEUM PRESENTS
THE 2013 ARTIST INTERVENTION SERIES

AN TE LIU
MONO NO MA
September 7 – November 11, 2013
For MONO NO MA acclaimed artist An Te Liu
is creating a new body of sculptures which explore the spaces around
things. While mono is Japanese for ‘object’, ma is a more elusive term
referring to ‘space’ or ‘gap’, but one which is simultaneously aware of
form and non-form.
Drawing inspiration from artefacts found in
the Gardiner’s Ancient Americas collection, Liu works with the remains
from our contemporary consumer milieu, conjuring new forms borne out of
emptiness – entities poised between the familiar and the enigmatic,
material and immaterial, thing and no-thing.
