Lot Essay

The Katz collection features several works from Bernar Venet's sculptural repertoire; the largescale Undetermined Line (1982), the tabletop 107.5° ARC (1988), and the slightly more intimate work 97.5° ARC X 14 (2001?). Together these works encompass a diverse range of Venet’s artistic expression, including his monumental swirling lines, dynamic steel arcs, and intricately balanced configurations, each bearing testament to his innovative exploration of form, materiality, and conceptual depth. Berner Venet (born 1941) is a French conceptual artist, whose work often explores themes of order, chaos, and the nature of mathematical relationships, reflecting his background in mathematics and science. Venet's sculptures ultimately challenge viewers to contemplate the inherent beauty and complexity of mathematical principles manifested in visual form.
