The artist

Daniel Buren

Daniel buren is a French visual artist, painter and sculptor, he is notably known for his In Situ installations (a work dedicated to the place in which it is installed). Buren's works are then intended to reveal the space in which they are located. Vertical stripes are a recurring motif in Buren's work, they are for the artist a "visual tool", composed of the chromatic alternance of white and coloured stripes, of a very precise width of 8.7 cm, fixed by the artist since 1967. They are notably found in the artist's first public commission in the main courtyard of the Palais Royal in Paris, "Les Deux Plateaux" or the "Buren columns" as they are more commonly known.
