Sol LeWitt: Folds and Rips

1966–1980

Text by Dieter Schwarz.

A debut presentation of minimalist pioneer Sol LeWitt's torn and folded paper works, his brilliant extension of the parameters and definitions of drawing

In 1966, Sol LeWitt (1928–2007) conceived a new type of work that he described as “drawings without drawing,” in which he replaced the act of drawing itself by using various ways of folding paper. In 1969, he started to regularly produce what he called Folds, first as gifts to friends, then as works to be distributed by his dealers. In 1971 he added the Rips, drawings made of ripped paper.

LeWitt developed this extended approach to drawing from ripping papers of various sizes and colors to working with city maps and aerial photos of Florence, Manhattan and Chicago from which he removed various areas. This systematic approach, on which so much of LeWitt’s work is famously based, was also applied to the Folds and the Rips, and so they tended to be created in series.

The book presents these works for the first time, along with a historical essay by Dieter Schwarz and full-color reproductions of the Folds and the Rips.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Brooklyn Rail

Megan Liberty

Folds & Rips highlight[s] different aspects of LeWitt’s fold and rip drawings, but share in reclaiming this practice as an important part of the artist’s creative output. Radius treats the work as visual objects and König as a body of work to be documented and placed in a historical context. Together, they leave readers wanting even more books on these ephemeral and possibly lost creased and torn slips of paper.
