Ian Wilson

Exhibition, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Germany.


Until May 14, 2017
Since the late 1960s, Ian Wilson has been exploring the ae hetic potential of oken language. His on-going body of work – beginning with oral communication and eventually including his signature Discussions – began in 1968 with the oken word time. The artist, who started out as a painter, soon transformed the act of discussion into his sole artistic medium. Over four decades, the focus of these exchanges has shifted from time to the nature of knowledge and non-knowledge, and awareness of the Absolute. His works are not recorded or photographed in any way and exist only as long as the conversation itself.
