Inventory number: 8191

Title: Flying

Date: ca. 1972

Medium: Vintage silver prints

Image size: 8⅛ in (20.6 cm) high by 11⅝ in (29.5 cm) wide

Description: Composite of four vintage silver prints. Titled by the artist, with scaling for reproduction in pencil, on the mount.

Notes: The art of Peter Turk is characterized by systematic principles, realized within structures as well as series. Flying is one of his serial works, part of a series known as Expiry Actions in which his own body and a large sheet of paper become the tools for his artistic explorations. This is the only known example of this composite of photographs. Turk is considered among Hungary’s most important conceptual artists. A major retrospective of his work at the Ludwig Museum - Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest, in 2018 and the accompanying monograph brought his achievements to the attention of an international audience.

Price: $8,500
