*1941 Château-Arnoux – lives in New York and France
The large steel structures of Bernar Venet are known to audiences worldwide, but mostly from their prominent placements in their cityscapes. Space, time, and movement are basic phenomena that the artist wants to express through his works, whose basic design element is the line. However, he is also considered one of the most important French conceptual artists. Apart from group exhibitions in many museums, his most important individual exhibitions were organised by Haus Lange Krefeld and Kunsthaus Hamburg in 1970.
