Over the last few years, New Zealand-born Berlin-based artist Zac Langdon-Pole has cultivated a practice of elegant, if at times uncanny, elisions.

Exhibition view: Joseph Kosuth, 'Dot, Point, Period,' a Curated Installation by Joseph Kosuth, Castelli Gallery, New York (4 April–20 July 2019). Courtesy Castelli Gallery.
Organized by seminal conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth, 'Dot, Point, Period,' a Curated Installation by Joseph Kosuth covers every square foot of wall at the Castelli Gallery's 40th Street space. A selection of artworks by over 40 artists are dispersed within a continuous string of short texts. This string of text, in a three-inch typeface, follows the gallery's irregular contours, wrapping around the walls and dodging behind the pilasters, sprinkler pipes, and electrical conduits of the tidy but still raw space.
The artists are El Anatsui, Byung Hoon Choi, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Olafur Eliasson, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Cristina Iglesias and Ai Weiwei, and they were commissioned to create a mix of sculptures, light installations and suspended artworks for the 14-acre premises, known as the Susan and Fayez S. Sarofim Campus.
