Untitled, 1977, string and nails, and details.  Kazuko Miyamoto, Japanese, born 1942.  Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.

 

 

No pretentious wall notation full of art-theory jargon accompanies this work.

This is string arranged taut by means of nails between wall and  floor.  The artist diagrammed instructions which are used every time this piece is installed.
