ACCONCI, VITO TOUCH STONE (FOR VL). [The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]. April 1972.
Print. Two-color lithograph printed on Arches paper. Edition of 50 copies. Titled, dated, signed, numbered and editioned on the recto. Excellent condition. 29.5 x 21". "Vito Acconci could have found a cue to the problem of accomodating his own performance art to the format of the print in Joyce Weiland's O Canada; his own first two prints at the shop, Trademarks and Kiss-Off, both centre on the mouth of the artist, but his third print Touch Stone (For VL) makes a new departure. He rubbed a lithographic stone as if he were massaging a woman's body, all the while speaking out his thoughts to a tape-recorder, trying to imagine that VL was there beneath his hands. Originally he had wanted to use the sweat of his skin as the drawing medium, but when this proved impractical, the fact that the ink was labelled 'rubbing ink' gave some linguistic consolation. His hand-written transcription of selections from the tape were superimposed over the appropriate sections of the image." Reference: p. 30 NSCAD. The Nova Scotia College of Art & Design.

"(We are in the studio on Prinseneiland 25 in Amsterdam where Vito Acconci lives temporarily while working on his retrospective -- a show in the Stedelijk Museum from 30 November 1978 until 14 January 1979. It is about half past two in the afternoon of Saturday the 2nd of December 1978 when this taped conversation starts. I have just offered Vito Acconci to make alterations in the transcribed text if he wants to, but he remarks:) "VITO ACCONCI: ....IF SOMETHING SHOULD BE UNEDITED, THEN IT REALLY SHOULD BE UNEDITED... "(Still busy setting up the tape-recorder I tell that I have borrowed it from a friend, because mine makes so many extra sounds. He says:) "VITO ACCONCI: YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEEL YOU HAVE TO SIT ON THE FLOOR. I JUST FEEL BETTER ON IT. THE FLOOR IS RATHER DIRTY BUT. . . "Q: IT LOOKS GOOD TO ME . . . "(I say that the recording can start now:) "VITO ACCONCI: YES, WHAT DID INTEREST ME IN A NOTION OF DOING A - THAT DANGEROUS WORD - RETROSPECTIVE . . . THAT KIND OF FRIGHTENING WORD, BUT WHAT DID INTEREST ME IN DOING A RETROSPECTIVE WAS THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A WAY THAT POSSIBLY THINGS COULD BE MADE CLEAR TO OTHERS. . ."

"PROGRAM: Temporary installation for a solo museum exhibition. "PROJECT: 9 pairs of telescoping tubes, U-shaped at one end and L-shaped at the other. The U-shaped ends hook onto the parapet of the building; from the L-shaped ends one module of a park is suspended on threaded rod. "2 types of park-module alternate: a floor with a seat on opposite sides; and a floor with a seat on one side and a tree on the other. A connector, a step, joins one module to another. The floor, the seat and the step are metal grating: the tree sits in a metal grate, its roots still in the sack it was transported in. A light from beneath each floor illuminates the park. Each successive module is hung one step higher than the one before: as you walk through the park -- as you walk from step to floor, between seat and seat and between seat and tree -- you climb up the side of the building. "The park hangers telescope down to 8-foot sections, and are portable; the park is adaptable to buildings of different heights." Reference: Park up a Building.

"Tracking, Tracing, Marking, Pacing is a drawing show. That is, it is a show not only made up of drawings, but about drawings of a very particular kind - those that represent or are inspired in some way by the notion of movement. "It is crucial that this distinction be understood from the outset, since many of the included artists have reputations as choreographers or dancer / performers (a denomination meant for dance-trained individuals whose vocabularies of movement are decidedly unorthodox and personal). The drawings are not presented to foster greater understanding of contemporary performance, though this is a rewarding secondary effect. Rather, our awareness of the artists' involvement with movement in other media should enhance our appreciation for their works on paper." Reference: Tracking, Tracing, Marking, Pacing.

"Broken Music shows works of visual artists created with and for the medium of the record: records, record-covers, record-objects, record-installations. In contrast to the composer or musician who perceives the record first and foremost as a vehicle transporting his musical ideas, the visual artist is especially interested in the optical as well as the acoustical presence. In the early 60's, Milan Knizak called his record-collages 'Broken Music' - by destroying, painting, pasting and breaking records - he also broke with the traditional habits of hearing. 'Broken Music' stands for a break with conventional ideas, as a breakthrough into something new. This start - somewhat simple to be sure, but thereby all the more conclusive - seemed convincing enough to form the concept for the whole exhibition." Reference: p. 9 BROKEN MUSIC.
