short biography

Lawrence Weiner (b. 1942, Bronx / New York; d. 2021) lived in New York. He was one of the main characters of Conceptual art but saw himself as a sculptor rather than a conceptualist. His text sculptures - "language + the material referred to" as he defines it - have appeared in all sorts of places over the last five decades.
