Matta-Clark (b. 1943, New York City), originally an architect, was notorious for his innovative, interventionist forays into a range of media, from film to photography, from sculpture to cuisine. Rejecting the commodification of art, Matta-Clark was most famous for the measured, deliberate deconstruction of buildings flagged for demolition, amongst other singular, controversial projects.
