In the early 1970s, Luis Camnitzer focused his interest on making objects, a shift marked by the significant and unique Object Boxes (1973-78). The wooden boxes with glass fronts and backs bear brass plates low on their faces, engraved with a title in English or Spanish, and contain additional elements. Continuing in Camnitzer’s tradition of overtly linking image and word, the Object Boxes allow the viewer to assume and identify a relationship between the coupled elements and text. However, the works exist neither as definitions nor illustrations, as the text on each box predates its contents. Ultimately, the relationship between language and object remains a spontaneous construct, a narrative assembled by the viewer.
