Daniel Libeskind

Major Silence

'94 Mar.9-Apr.16

In this exhibition, a twenty-meter track extends from the entry, pass the glass wall and into the rear of the garden, upon which a disc two meters in diameter shuttles slowly to one end of the track and back and again. The device is entitled "Line and Wheel". Beside the track at the center of the exhibition space is another object, resembling a giant automatic weighing scale. Six discs of different size have been inserted into the slightly slanted top of its aluminum-clad cylinder, enabling the aluminum model to revolve. These two objects, moving nowhere noiselessly, seem somehow to cry out in silence. Such is the unique, ambivalent world of Daniel Libeskind.
