Gordon Matta-Clark, 1943-1978

Gordon Matta-Clark is one of the artists most closely linked to the urban condition. Like so many other artists who settled in New York’s SoHo in the late sixties, Matta-Clark became an emblem of what has on occasions been known as the ‘loft situation’. 

His premature death in 1978 put an end to a career marked by a fast development of critical methods in the fields of art and architecture. His ‘building cuts’, consisting of aggressive interventions on the structure of derelict buildings, are still regarded as emblematic works. Splitting, 1973,Day’s End, 1975, and Conical Intersect, 1975, soon became icons of urban activism

Gordon Matta-Clark, Splitting, (1974)

Gordon Matta-Clark’s 1974 piece, Splitting, depicts each phase of his first large-scale and most celebrated Anarchitectural project. In it, the artist physically and metaphorically tears through spatial and structural barriers to reveal the obstacles between human and natural environments, as well as social and cultural obstacles (Matta-Clark was acutely aware of, and saw his work as commentary on both the decay of the American city and the growing sense that the American dream was evaporating). This project was demolished weeks after completion — which only added to his cult status after an early death in 1978.
