By making works placed directly on the floor, Andre challenged traditional conventions of sculptural practice and presentation. Venus Forge is an arrangement of metal tiles that can be walked on by the viewer, emphasising the relationship between sculpture and floor. Andre also draws attention to his materials, contrasting highly polished copper with the dark surface of steel. The number of tiles is potentially endless. In theory, Venus Forge could stretch forever.
