Inventories & Autobiographies

Christian Boltanski, Inventory of Objects..., 1974

Sol LeWitt, Autobiography, 1980

LeWitt's Autobiography is an inventory of his own life while Boltanski's is a biography of an anonymous woman's from Bois-Colombes. They both define lives by personal possessions. Boltanski's is more objective while LeWitt is more personal. They are both proving to be inspirations as I continue my long time collection of the autobiography.
