Charles Ray - Plank Piece I-II, 1973
“This work was an investigation of the plane that simultaneously divides and supports the body. Thinking of sculpture as an activity rather than an object, Ray inserted his body into a simple equation of support, aligning the joints separating his pelvis from his torso, and his calves from his thighs, with the angle of connection between the wall and a plank laid against it.” — Amelia Jones
