A Simple Plan explores the transformation of a straightforward idea into a complex presence. Through the device of metaphor and illusion, the description of an approach morphs into a rich, sumptuous visual experience. An artist continually writing his signature in a spiral for the life of an ink cartridge (Tom Friedman); a square section of drywall polished to a fragile, mirror-like finish (Karin Sander); a film that records an image of the sun from sunrise to sunset (Paul Pfeiffer); a rectangular Plexiglass volume with water inside it (Hans Haacke), are but a few examples of how modest means evolve into objects which are complex ruminations on presence and absence, nature and culture, order and chaos.
Featured artists include: Carl Andre, Richard Artschwager, John Cage, Tom Friedman, Adam Fuss, Hans Haacke, Ernesto Neto, Paul Pfeiffer, Gerhard Richter, Karin Sander, Alan Saret, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.
