Untitled (Golden) - Felix Gonzalez-Torres, 1995
From the Guggenheim:
Conceived shortly before the artist’s death,“Untitled” (Golden) (1995) extends across a space as a luminous curtain, shimmering with faceted tendrils of faux-gilded beads. The gentle confrontation of this golden screen provokes the tactile and sensory, inviting the viewer to transform its shape simply by walking through. This collective and public experience of doing so, however, belies the intimate nature of Gonzalez-Torres’s other beaded curtain works, which often reference the organic and inorganic substances associated with battling AIDS. A kind of membrane, as pliable and permeable as the biological materials that compose the cells of the human body,“Untitled” (Golden) is a work of transitory passage—from life to death, public to private, the known to the unknown.
