Office Baroque # 669
Photography, 175 x 105 cm.
Materials: cibachrome, tape, hard board, plexi
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0187).
Aware of the impermanence of his work, Matta-Clark did everything in his power to document his performances and interventions in abandoned buildings as extensively as possible. Office Baroque # 669, from 1977, is a collage of three Cibachrome prints stuck onto hardboard with black tape, which Matta-Clark donated to Florent Bex for his future Museum of Contemporary Art. In his collages, Matta-Clark tried to evoke the spatial experience of his architectural interventions by cutting photos, enlarging them and putting them together again in all directions.
