I first found Bernar Venet, distinguished doyen of congealed loop de loops (Indeterminate Lines), in 1969 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago Art By Telephone exhibition that emphasized emerging conceptual-minimal artists. Venet’s current show, 1961 & 1963: les origins at Ceysson & Bénétière Paris, puts him back into that post-Duchampian / Yves Klein context with early minimal works that ponder the power of black and the pull of gravity through an inter-disciplinarian methodology. (The show skips 1962 because Venet was in Algeria on military service that year.)
