A key figure of American Minimalism, Donald Judd established an essential vocabulary of forms and always remained faithful to it. Far from considering his works as sculptures – calling them ‘specific objects’ – he used simple and often repeated forms with the intention of exploring space and its uses. Untitled (1984) is one such construction. Judd moves away from the illusion and representation of space characteristic of the European artistic tradition, to let the scale, materials and evolution of the line become an end in itself.

By presenting a story of a victim of violence in Colombia, I am calling on the memory of pain which all human beings have, here or anywhere else in the world.
