Carl Andre
Carl Andre (1935–) is a prominent sculptor and poet associated with the rise of Minimal Art, particularly in the United States during the 1960s. Andre's sculptures are created by arranging basic-shaped metal plates, stones, or wooden units directly on the floor or stacking them through simple actions. Unlike traditional sculptures, these works spread horizontally at our feet without resisting gravity, allowing some to be walked upon. In his poetry, Andre uses alphabet words as basic units. Devoid of any lyrical elements, his "poetry" is meant to be enjoyed by looking rather than being read whimsically on paper. However, exploring the chosen words provides glimpses into Andre's philosophy and areas of interest.

This exhibition introduces Carl Andre in a solo exhibition at a Japanese museum for the first time. By presenting both the experience of confronting his sculptural works in the gallery space and unraveling the artist's thoughts through his poetry, the exhibition aims to provide an opportunity to engage with the richness within Andre's concise and systematic visual appearance.
