Believing that art should be accessible to everyone regardless of education, Le Parc seeks to engage viewers through dynamic elements that act directly on their experiences; here the undulating movement of the metal band causes the sculpture’s static red and white stripes to appear to oscillate. Works such as this demonstrate Le Parc’s interest in pursuing art as a research practice on the effects of formal properties—color, composition, and movement—on perception. The artist shared this approach with a generation of artists who moved from Argentina to Paris in the late 1950s and 1960s, including Martha Boto, whose work is on view nearby.
