TAKAKO SAITO, hand out by Takako on 14 July in Wiesbaden, 2022
ca 14 x 15 x 7 cm
plastic cup with text “On on On on”, felt pen ink, bean, colour print, cellophane bag
This object in cellophane bag was part of a performance in Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden (Germany). Every ten years a Fluxus Anniversary is organised.
‘Takako’s performance consisted of her digging up all kinds of objects from a bag and throwing them one by one to the audience. Each object had one or more words on it. The people who caught the objects had to read aloud what was written on it. Completely different words, meaning didn’t matter, they were fantasy words to me. It did work comically, especially when she threw a lot of things in quick succession.’
