Minimum Maximum is a poem of Carl Andre.

Minimum maximum.

This opposition tells a delicate thing about Carl Andre's thoughts and work.

It reveals to us this paradox which echo our feelings and senses.


What our bodies are feeling when facing a work of art ?

Work in a different set of scales this physical experience.

Becoming a child.

Becoming gigantic.

Becoming a monument.

Becoming yourself, this touch all works of art call and prohibit at the same time.
