Dennis Oppenheim

Interviewed by Lisa Le Feuvre

Dennis Oppenheim’s practice has taken in actions, performances, installations, sculptures, film, architecture and everything in between. Seminal early works include Cancelled Crop, 1969, a field was harvested in the form of an X, and Reading Position for Second Degree Burn, 1970, a photographic diptych of Oppenheim lying on Jones Beach in New York, one with an open book (titled Tactics) face down on his chest, and one without showing the void created after five hours exposed to the sun. In recent years he has returned to the object and created installations including the Garden for the Accused in New York.
