Rippin' for Gordon - #059 - E.J. Hobsbawm Komt Tot de Conclusie Dat Bandieten Wel Revolutionair Zijn

E.J. Hobsbawm
Bandieten


© 1973 by Wetenschappelijke Uitgeverij bv, Amsterdam
Vertaling: mr. R. Germeraad
Omslag: Alje Olthof G V N

De sentimentele bandiet: Bandiet van de Apennijnen
(1824), schilderij van sir Charles Eastlake (1793-1865),
voorzitter van de Royal Academy.

ISBN 90 214 2760 5

12,5 x 20,0 cm, 182p, softcover



On 31 January 2018 I ripped the 182 pages from E.J. Hobsbawm Bandieten, tore them in half and threw them in the Hole I've been Diggin' for Gordon in a basement at an undisclosed location in Antwerpen since 20 February 2006.
The title refers to Gordon Matta-Clark whose last and major work ‘Office Baroque’ in Antwerpen I illegally visited at the start of my career as an artist. The performance/installation evolved into a ‘mash-up’ with ingredients from the works of various avantgarde artists from the 70’s. For instance a slant row of florescent lights inspired by Dan Flavin takes care of lightning and an endless ladder as imagined by Vito Acconci makes it possible to get in and out of the hole. The work was made visible through a number of side actions and performances where I used some of the dirt I had been digging up. Most of the dirt was used to fill up James Lee Byars' tomb.
As of 9 September 2017 the Hole is filled with precious books from my private library.
