For forty-five years Chris Burden maintained a quest to challenge perceived boundaries of modern art in an always awe-inspiring manner.

He had himself shot, locked up in a 2x2x3 locker for five days, electrocuted, crucified on the back of a VW bug. Burden reinvented himself as the creator of truly mesmerizing installations and sculptures, from a suspended gigantic flywheel that seemingly spins on its own (and scarily picks up speed) to an assemblage of antique street lights rewired for solar energy and are illuminated outside Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
