Robert Morris
1982 - concrete, trani and serpentina stone

In the park at Celle, Morris chose a sloping field as the site for his work. The viewer of Labyrinth is initially overwhelmed by the façade's green and white stripes, which refer to the Romanesque churches found throughout Tuscany. Anyone entering Labyrinth's narrow path becomes caught up in the psychological uneasiness created by the stripes. At first glance, these stripes seem comprehensible but are, in fact, deformed by the slant of the hillside. The geometry of the artwork is not immediately apparent, for one only realizes that it is a perfect equilateral triangle when the work is seen from above.
