Mind Body & Beyond, Robert Morris (1931–2018)


  • Robert Morris – obit from Artforum –

    Robert Morris—the American artist who irreversibly transformed contemporary art as a founding practitioner of Minimalism—has died at age eighty-seven in Kingston, New York, from pneumonia, according to his wife, Lucile Michaels Morris. For over five decades, Morris flouted predictability through his experimentations in sculpture, dance, performances, installations, Land-, and process art.

    In the text ‘Indiana Street’, the wonderful essay on some recollections of your childhood growing up in Kansas, that appears in your most recent collected writings Have I Reasons, you wrote about a moment in the winter of 1935, when you were four years old, putting your fist through a window, and described your reaction as the ‘cardinal moment in my life’. Could you tell us more about this?

    Robert Morris
    It was a moment of fury and anger relieved by an act of bodily violence. No doubt I have lived a life of art-making by transposing and sublimating a fury that has never abated and rises ever anew: an unending source of energy.
