The Clark – The Organic Line Towards a Topology of Weak Links

Small is working on a book that takes as its point of departure the Brazilian artist Lygia Clark’s concept of “the organic line.” Small suggests that Lygia Clark’s concept regarding this line compels us to reconsider fundamental terms such as medium, mark, and edge, while providing a model for transforming linear and comparative models of art history into topological formations. These formations, in turn, mutually deform the “center” and the “periphery.”
