4 Corners




“All four corners of the gallery space are illuminated by the works of Dan Flavin. I take several shots. Four segments of an interpretation of Music On A Long Thin Wire, a piece Alvin Lucier composed in 1977, are associated with my photographs. Ultimately, this is a tribute to two great artists and a conversation with their work.”
(Pierre Dorion, 2012)
