Nam June Paik, FRANCESCO CONZ publisher, collector, fetishist
Hand-assembled work: a 4-ring binder in slipcase, containing 52 plastic sleeves containing 92 original photographs (9 images of Paik and/or Charlotte Moorman), some correspondence and printed matter.
The edition, a collaboration between the Archivio Francesco Conz and Galerie A, was published in 20 numbered copies in 2010, and sold out the same year.
This copy, used as a model, is one of two different A.P. numbered ‘proofs’. (The other copy was for the Francesco Conz, Verona.)
In the regular edition the photographs were glued onto the pages. For this proof self adhesive photo corners were used; most of the photographs (often 13 x 18 cm), bear the stamp of the ARCHIVIO FRANCESCO CONZ on the reverse
