Untitled (Threshold Sculptures)

Nathan Coley

The threshold sculpture is a simple eight-centimeter-high plank of wood on the floor, which you have to step over to enter the gallery space. Very simple and a bit annoying—I think of them as being a frame for the space. Critics hate them, as they think I am trying to trip them up, which of course is exactly what I am doing.
