Claude Rutault, ‘de-finition/method #107. "generalized puzzle-painting"’, 1977-2010, Perrotin

Variable dimensions according to the actualization

a series of irregular shapes that never quite fit together; parts of the wall can be seen between them. yet they touch at many points. they form a quasi-puzzle in which each shape has a well-defined place.
the charge-taker is free to hang them any way he or she wants, and may actualize a single puzzle or arrange its parts into several groups to be shown together in the same space. one part may even be isolated. these shapes are painted the same color as the wall on which they’re hung.
