Nauman is perhaps best known for his neon signs, which employ a mixture of vibrant colour and wordplay. In contrast to these, his recent artworks often employ a more sombre style. Comprised of a black granite slab carved with the words ‘partial truth’, this sculpture appears rather like a memorial plaque, and is reminiscent of 1960s minimalist artworks. Nauman here inscribes an abstract concept on to a physical object, perhaps questioning the ability of art to reveal hidden truths. Situated within a gallery space, language nevertheless becomes a tangible entity that demands the interaction between viewer and object.
