Yellow Panel (1970s) ->
The first bag and cloth piece is in the collection of Hermann Braun, a great friend
of Fluxus living in Germany. It contains small found objects such as brushes, a metal
door knob, some shoe parts. Each item is ticketed with simple direction for sounding.
Yellow Panel #2 pictured here is later in time, when the collector Luigi Bonotto was
commissioning artwork from Fluxus people. We could work with him in Molvena, Italy.
We worked with Francesco Conz in Asolo and Verona for many years. These bags contain
small items and are multicolored yellow and tiny. I have exhibited this work with
Caterina Gualco in Genova. These works in Italy come mainly from the seventies and
eighties. I still show with Caterina Gualco whenever I have a chance. Her gallery
overlooks the town and is close to the seashore. She is a wonderful cook.
The person to be credited with bringing Fluxus to Italy and into the Venice Biennale
was Gino Di Maggio, however
it was Francesco Conz who worked tirelessly for years making silkscreen editions with us.
