If, Bwana / Al Margolis - Listen (Hear) Look (See)

from ANTS

Cardboard Box (cm. 14 x 14 x 2,6) containing: Mixed Media (several music/sound detritus including broken records, cassette tapes, compact disc, and all related material -booklet, covers etc plus pieces of "real" original paintings), Panels, Download Code Car.

Limited Edition of 50 numbered and unique copies.

The reflection made by If, Bwana/Al Margolis (as the two faces of the same artist) are upon the concept of communication in art.
What is the role of the artist and what is the role of the spectator?
Is any interpretation of art valid?
Is it possible to have a direct communication between the act of creation and the act of seeing/listening?

Each boxset in this series of 50 is absolutely unique, containing different slags of sound and vision (waste pieces of sound media - but no sounding for the ear; cut pieces of paintings - made by Al Margolis himself - but "partly" speaking for the eye; blank cardboard, just to see/hear if there is a void to fill - or not). Half of the edition is assembled in Italy and the other half in the US, so you can even look at the difference (or maybe you can even listen to it?).

We listen - but do we hear? We look - but do we see?

Each box will contain a card with a personal Download Code.

A note: if you want to have the "European edition" you must order it from us, but if you need the "US edition" you must order it from www.pogus.com. For the WAV file simply follow the included instructions. Every box is numbered.
