Crawford introduces Matta-Clark’s architectural works and discusses a project where he purchased 13 properties (left over pieces of land rezoning) in New York City. The audience asks several questions about the purchases and Jane Crawford tells several funny anecdotes. Crawford explains Matta-Clark’s first cutting piece, and reviews a project in collaboration with Robert Smithson. She discusses how Matta-Clark by making excavations in buildings could examine the layers of neighborhoods. Crawford shows the “Splitting” piece, where Matta-Clark cut a house in half.
