Douglas Gordon & Lawrence Weiner: “Rosy-Fingered Dawn”

Gagosian Athens

05 Apr 201720 May 2017

This duo show runs around the concept of the written word as a formal foundation and a conceptual conduit.

Starting from the investigation of the processes of human consciousness and perception, Gordon reveals the dual nature of the self, while Weiner exposes the sculptural dimensions of language. “Rosy-Fingered Dawn” is a recurring epithet from Homer’s Odyssey, an optimistic proposition for a new beginning.
