Free Sol Lewitt
The copy machine
In the FREE SOL LEWITT workshop a couple of workmen work daily on reproducing LeWitt´s Untitled (Wall Structure). LeWitt commissioned a company to produce the work in 1972. Now in 2010, LeWitt´s work is being reproduced in a museum room, where four tables have been set-up. Here, workmen cut the aluminium, weld it into a lattice structure, sand this form and then paint it white. The copies lie stacked in a corner awaiting their new destinations. The copies will be distributed free-of-charge to the public through a random system which visitors to the museum can sign-up for. The installation makes the production, presentation and distribution of an art work simultaneously visible.
