Lot Essay

Kosuth has said that "art is making meaning," and in his work he investigates the ways in which artmaking is tied to language. The present work is part of a series based on definitions clipped from dictionary entries for words including "art," "chair," "meaning," or, in this reflexive example, "Copy." Kosuth considers the work of art to be the definition of the given word, but for the purpose of presentation he asks that his original cut-out dictionary entry be photographically enlarged to a specific dimension each time the work is exhibited.
