Like Child’s Play is inspired by German educational theorist Friedrich Wilhelm August Fröbels. Consisting of 100 blocks, arches, triangles and pediments, Buren plays with scale so that the objects, which, as children we towered over now dwarf us. Throughout his career, Buren has created artworks that complicate the relationship between art and the structures that frame it. His work questions how space can be used, appropriated, and revealed both physically and socially. Presented by Carriageworks and A Schwartz.
