Sigurdur Gudmundsson, ‘Talking and silent floor’ (2000)

This sculpture is made of original wooden floor parts of Galerie Van Gelder that covered the floor when the gallery space was taken over from Art & Project in 1985. After its removal the artist used part of the floor for a sculpture in which the artist or anyone else could speak to an audience, as a kind of social minimalistic sculpture. In 2000 during the opening of his exhibition he inaugurated his sculpture by telling stories about his art and relatives.
