Kinmont’s work enacts the promise of art as a mediator of exchange and connection between artist and viewer. This space of mediation is characterized by the artist as “the third sculpture.” Kinmont’s third is located somewhere between Joseph Beuys’ social sculpture and conceptual art, somewhere between the self and the other. The projects selected from the Prospectus archives offer an alternate reading of the history of conceptual art, one in which the work is understood as a materialization of life rather than a dematerialization of the art object.
