description

Folio housed publication. "'A Spoken Space' is a series of exhibitions during two years which set in action the combination of the telephone network, the symbolic place of the gallery and an artist whose piece was specially conceived for this program. Each exhibition or imaginary installation was broadcast night and day for eight days by the automatic answering-device. The goal of this program was to highlight the transition from one mode of perception to another : the transformation of a 'fictitious visual space' into its 'actual verbal representation.' In accordance with the fundamental idea of this project, you will find here, instead of a pressed record, the totality of the 'records,' furnished by each artist." -- introductory text from publication.
