inv.TSai 262-pr_for art handling use gloves

It is known that Takako Saito has made a few of these unique hand made plastic bags called “Wassermusik”, with geometric patterns alluding to musical scores without written notes. Apparently the water took care of the music. The bag is supposed to hang on a wall and was filled with water from the Rhine in Düsseldorf, Germany. In the long run this evaporated. Considering the use and age of this unique item it is in an excellent condition, without tears, cracks, rust or petrification. KvG June 2022

In several works Raphaël Langmair deals with duplications. He finds an object and makes a replica, although differently from its original. In the past he used ink of an octopus for making one in print of that same octopus. In another work he takes a fruit market crate and rebuilds it into a triangle shaped one.
Recently one morning he burnt his toast. He took another slice of bread in order to make a toast again. While waiting he decided to burn deliberately the next one as well that brought him two burnt toasts that he turned into a piece, hence the title of this edition: “Again”. KvG

EL LISSITZKY, badge, 1990

EL LISSITZKY, badge, 1990
5,3 x 5,4 cm
glossy print, badge/lapel/pin
limited edition
published by Rosa Esman Gallery, New York, USA
very rare
splendid condition
inv.ELis 24-pr

This edition was produced decades after El Lissitzky’s death in 1941, and so made without his consent. Nevertheless it is archived for curiosity reasons, being part of the Rosa Esman Gallery in New York that had apparently reasons for having such a pin made without an autorisation of the artist. The badge is similarly fabricated as the one of Sol LeWitt with iconic stripes in black and white. Opposite to the LeWitt badge the one of Lissitzky is verso dated: “1990”, perhaps a circumstantial evidence that both pins were made in the same period.
