Museum Talk with Elizabeth Wyckoff, Hannah Klemm and Buzz Spector on his current exhibition “Buzz Spector: Alterations” at St. Louis Art Museum (until May 31, 2021.) There are very few distinct lines in nature, so the task of an artist rendering forms is one of making lines stand in for edges, delineating forms in space as boundaries on a plane. If a drawn line is an edge, can a material edge, as on a sheet of torn paper, be understood as a drawn line? This philosophical question extends toward a complex of other boundaries: of perception, identity, memory, and ethics. Artist Buzz Spector (American, born 1948) presents a line of argument, in images and texts, about edges, both those we see and those that demarcate something lost.
