Abstract (English)

Steiner’s essay on Congdon’s “Figures” series of sculptures focuses on the complementary relationship between the material/tactile and immaterial/optical. His analysis of the artist’s “Baroque minimalism” relies on Deleuze’s theory of the fold. Congdon’s mirror pieces and “Form of an Optical Axis for Twisted Cinema” are also considered in relation to Foucault’s theories on the “archaeology of knowledge” and Fried’s critique of minimalism in “Art and Objecthood.” Includes list of works. Biographical notes. 29 bibl. ref.
