Gordon Matta-Clark

Gordon Matta-Clark (b. 1943-d. 1978) is an American artist. He is the son of the painter Roberto Matta.

During the 1970’s, Matta-Clark was a famous figure among the SoHo artistic community in New York. His best-known works are the “Building Cuts”, a series of intervention on abandoned buildings. He removed and cut parts of the architecture to create new shapes and change our spatial perception. Matta-Clark used photography and film to keep track of his work.
