TAKAKO SAITO, Wassermusik, 2000
33 x 17,3 cm
hand made plastic bag, permanent felt pen ink, heat press ridges, metal rings, dried up water and sand from river Rhine
series of circa 2-3 unique works
signed, dated
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

artist’s publication

The text in French reads:
‘This collection contains old stencils dating from 1963 to 1969. I removed these stencils because lately people often asked me for old issues of TOUT from 1 to 6 which are sold out.
This collection is far from complete; most of the stencils of magazine ‘BEN DIEU’ those of the chapter poetry and ‘Moi Ben je Signe’, have not been preserved’

Fluxus KNOWLES, ALISON multiples

ALISON KNOWLES, Bread and Water, 1992 [glove + tag]

ALISON KNOWLES, Bread and Water, 1992
ca 20 x 14 x 2 cm
woolen glove, paint, ink stamped and PVC plasticised label, rope
signed with initials, dated

 

This apparently used glove has an industrial plastic coating. The text on the attached label reads: ‘Scratch plastic surface of glove to the ear’. When this is done the hardened paint makes indeed some kind of a rustling noise. Although it is known that Alison Knowles noticed that the cracks in homemade bread had a resemblance to rivers, it is unknown to what extend this woolen glove with ink stamped title refers to bread and water, and so to rivers.

It is not clear whether this object with machine typed text is an edition.

‘Alison Knowles is neither a composer nor a performer in any traditional terms, yet much of her work is obviously some sort of music. When pressed to categorize herself, she told me she conceives most of her works simply as events. Yet even this catchall term does not include her sculpture and prints, or her books and poems. But while she works in many media or intermedia, everything she does comes out of the same basic impulses: a concern for communication between human beings, an appreciation of the aesthetic qualities of ordinary objects, a deep respect for John Cage, and a profound understanding of what “communicating” is really about.’ Tom Johnson in Musical America, 1975.
