n°17 - John Giorno & Ugo Rondinone

“ I knew of the trans-generational dialogue
between the two artists, who see each other
regularly since Rondinone moved to New York,
and so invited them to work together. Rondinone
disguised Giorno as a clown and took photos to
accompany Giorno’s poem “Demons in the
Details” and vice versa. Giorno’s poem has since
been translated into French, Italian, Spanish and
Japanese, available on flyers, which accompany the
Point d’Ironie. We would like to thank both artists
for the wonderful dialogue. We are also indebted
to Brigitte Cornand for triggering the contact with
John Giorno.”
– Hans Ulrich Obrist
