Lawrence Weiner: HERE IT IS HERE IT AINT

 

Jonathan Ellery / Lawrence Weiner

 

Generated by a series of fertile exchanges between two artists, Jonathan Ellery and Lawrence Weiner, HERE IT IS HERE IT AINT is a quintessential artist book — in that it has no foreword, appendages or footnotes; and the meaning, as indicated by the title, is far from absolute.

It is apparent that while there are clear distinctions in the work of Lawrence Weiner and Jonathan Ellery, they comfortably inhabit the same context. For both of them, art and life manifest in an objective, concrete synthesis. Their statements function as catalysts for conversations whose composition craft a seductive mise-en-scene.
