Published on the occasion of the presentation of “Works from the Lawrence Weiner Poster Archive of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design 1965-1986,” the two works — MY HOUSE IS YOUR HOUSE and WE ARE SHIPS AT SEA NOT DUCKS ON A POND — were designed in a striking poster form by conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, and are introduced by Rudi Fuchs, who compares Weiner’s work with generality and abstraction in language with that of the guerilla fighter “living off the land, moving among the peasants, in the field. In something like the same bold spirit of infiltration.”.
