Sol LeWitt (1928-2007) was one of the most prominent post-war American artists and is considered a key founder of conceptual art. His art could be described as obsession pushed to the limit of paradox and absurdity: an often simple idea leading to an overwhelming visual and intellectual beauty. To make progress, you need to go back to the essence, he felt.
The filmmaker explores the strength of LeWitt’s conceptual philosophy. People who knew the artist or worked with him, in the Netherlands, the U.S. and Italy, for example, constitute the mirror that revives Sol.
