“École normale” consists of one work, Sol LeWitt's “Black Cubes (2)”, accompanied by associated information framed on the walls. At its center, the exhibition is of one sculpture, literally: a “solo exhibition” that comments upon a single work, encircles it with thoughts and puts it in context. The significance of “secondary information” comes into focus as it enters into a relationship with “Black Cubes (2)” and interprets, changes and contextualizes the work. – A context that is poetically re|constructed in the exhibition space: “It is immediately understood that the cube represents the cube, a geometric figure that is incontestably itself.” (LeWitt, 1966)
