Description
54 slides documenting an artist book by Cha. The title is unknown. The artist book is composed of envelopes, letters, origami paper, salt, ash, earth, flour, leaves and is 1 1/2 x 3 1/2." 10 of the slides are numbered in pencil I-VIII. Also handwritten on the 10 slides is "Cha, Hak Kyung T / Art Practice / Netherlands / July 7 / 1977." The meaning of "Art Practice / Netherlands" is unclear. In 1977 Galerie Finigal, Amsterdam, Holland and Other Books and So, Amsterdam, Holland each had an exhibition of Cha's work. This work was possibly intended for the exhibitions.
The artist book was also possibly created for Ulises Carrion, a mail artist, gallery and bookshop owner living in Amsterdam. The original artist book is in the Carrian Archive, Geneva, Switzerland.
