Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978) was an American conceptual artist, who fundamentally changed the understanding of architecture. His site-specific works revealed the chaos and anarchy behind the seeming order of the urban space. Anu Vahtra’s project in the Kumu Art Museum courtyard is inspired by Matta-Clark’s activities.
