“Conceptual artists leap to conclusions logic cannot reach,” said Sol LeWitt in a rare interview from 1974. Notoriously camera-shy, LeWitt refused awards and rarely granted interviews, yet in this sensitive cinematic portrait the pioneering conceptual American artist comes alive. LeWitt’s artwork can be seen as obsession pushed to the limit of paradox and absurdity: simple ideas, communicated simply—often with a set of instructions sent by fax—lead to overwhelming visual and intellectual complexity. Using extensive interviews and documentation of artwork installed around the world, this excellent documentary explores the artist’s work and philosophy. (2013, 72 min, digital)
