Rye Dag Holmboe examines previously undocumented wall drawings produced by Sol LeWitt in the Torre Bonomo in Spoleto in 1976. Using a psychoanalytic framework derived in part from the writings of Adrian Stokes, Holmboe argues for the existence of an “architectural unconscious” in LeWitt's practice and for the crucial importance of architecture to our understanding of Conceptual art more broadly. The essay further explores the choreographic dimensions of LeWitt's work and its autobiographical impulse.
