"Steel Inside/Outside Piece," a work comprised of two steel plates, demonstrates Carl Andre's innovative approach to sculpture. Contrary to art historical precedent, Andre created works that are oriented horizontally and very low to the ground. Highly aware of environment, Andre intended for this work to span a threshold - one plate inside, one plate outside - transcending conventional notions of setting. In line with Minimalist practice, Andre's ordered linear sculptures are often made up of smaller pieces proving that the sum can be larger than its parts.
