Something and Nothing, 2011, vinyl lettering, 3.3X5 m.
In Something and Nothing Be Andr explores and challenges the hierarchy of the gallery space. The piece seems to be a fragment. The fragment creates the impression of a division within the museum space, an ‘above’ and ‘below’ the line where only the ‘below’ is visible. However, the fragment is also both numerator and denominator in itself, thus a whole. Is this a fragment at all? Is it a word or a picture? Be Andr forces us to question the very essence of being in this piece. Is the piece too big for the museum or is the concept too big for art?
