Vito Acconci

Waterways : four saliva studies

Label: Squint Fucker Press

Format: CD

Genre: Sound Art

Out of stock

Soundtrack to Vito Acconci’s 1971 video “Waterways: Four Saliva Studies” as well as a remix by undo (Christof Migone and Alexandre St-Onge) entitled “Vito Acconci’s undoing.” cd in custom cardboard box with video stills of each Acconci study covered by hand in silver paint. "New York artist Vito Acconci belongs to that generation of conceptual players, including Chris Burden and Denis Oppenheim, who were more interested in what the body can do than what it’s actually made of. Early videotape performances featured Acconci shoving his hand down his throat and keeping it there until he started gagging. The highly amplified soundtrack for his 1971 video “Waterways: Four Saliva Studies”, is presented both in its unedited entirety and electronically filtered by undo (Christof Migone & Alexandre St-Onge). This potentially terse exchange between physical sound-making and its digitally morphed phantom comes packaged with a blob of dried spit inside the slipcase. At least, that’s what it looks like."
