Liz Larner is best known for her engaging investigations into the physicality of objects in space. 2001 is Larner’s virtuoso reinterpretation of the two quintessential geometric forms of modernist sculpture – the sphere and the cube. Twelve feet high, deep and wide, and painted in green and purple iridescent urethane, 2001 is anenigmatic shape-shifter; its contour and color change with the viewer’s angle and the overall light conditions so that it seems to be both at rest and undergoing metamorphosis.
Larner lives and works in Los Angeles. She received a BFA from California Institute of Arts (1985). Her work has been featured in the Whitney Biennial (2006), Regen Projects, Los Angeles (2005); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2002); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2001); Kunsthaus Graz, Austria (2006).
