Catalogue Note

"I’m not going to invent some new shape... I was more interested in the reconfiguration of and repositioning of relatively known, simple geometric forms. As long as the work was bound up by architecture or predicated on architecture, you know, it would only have limited possibility. I wanted to overcome that" (Michèle Gerber Klein, ‘Joel Shapiro’, BOMB Magazine, No. 109, Fall 2009, online).
