Daniel Buren - Changing perspectives

In Buren's work, the notion of the point of view refers to an idea of perspective, to a three dimensional perspective, the one surrounding us that's not illusionistic. A viewer that approaches his works with an instinctive point of view will experience a completely overturned relationship to the artwork. Exceeding one or two fixed points of view with a multitude of viewpoints that answer, interfere, resolve, enrich and contradict eachother, Daniel Buren's structures and interventions are all-encompassing and significative for their immediate environment.
This pluri-perspective leads to a complete reinvention of the space in which his works are created and installed. Primary and secondary colours juxtaposed with reflective mirrored surfaces and the white and coloured vertical stripes at 8.7cm wide have by now become a conceptual motif of the artist's work.
Of a voluntarily banal form, void of any content or meaning, the stripes are a visual tool. It has become the distinctive sign of the artist and is applied internally and externally to many different kinds of surfaces, tissue, paper, cement, glass, mirrors wood plexiglass, marble granite, optical fibres and vinyl paper as well as buildings.
His stripes, often adhesive, at times painted, are always done in situ and are transformative of their surroundings. Buren often works with colored glass, reflections and architectural constructions that invite the viewer to enter into a consistent relationship with the structures and surroundings, in turn providing an opportunity to approach a consideration on how we perceive space and how it is to be used.
He has exhibited at the Venice Biennale many times, and in 1986 when he represented France he won the Golden Lion for the best pavilion. In 2002 at the Centre Pompidou he staged the exhibition “Le musée qui n'existait pas”, a labyrinth composed by seventy coloured cells with plays of mirrors.
Daniel Buren transforms public spaces, architecture and everyday environments through in-situ installations of stripes and color that are indicative of his reinvention of the idea of the painter and artist in general.
Buren, a purveyor of contemporary, conceptual and minimalist art has set a precedent for contemporary artists to become influential in the viewer’s experience of the space in which their installations found themselves.
