In the nineties John Armleder told me the following. One day he, Olivier Mosset and Sylvie Fleury passed a shopping window in which three cuddly toy monkeys were put on display. They looked at each other and at themselves and Sylvie took a picture. Three monkeys forming the AMF clan under which name they regularly had exhibitions together. Not much later this screen print was made.
AMF is a word play of the artists surnames and a company named AMF / American Machine and Foundry that merged in 1969 with Harley Davidson Company. Its logo AMF refers also to one of the AMF artists Olivier Mosset, an enthousiastic Harley Davidson motorcyclist.
