Robert MORRIS: Photo Cabinet. 1975

Multiple.
Painted wood cabinet containing photograph. Closed: 38x27x4 cm. Outside photo, mounted on cardboard on the door: 24.5x19.2 cm. Inside photo, mounted on the bottom: 31.3x22.7 cm. Edition of 17 numbered, dated and signed copies. When Christophe Chérix was preparing the catalogue raisonné of R. Morris prints and mulitples he did not find a copy of the regular edition of 17. However he found 2 copies, one unsigned "A.P" copy, in a New York private collection, and another unsigned copy in a private collection in Fance, bearing no edition information whatsoever. Our copy is the one from the French private collection. This work exists now only as an edition as the original piece, unique, created in 1963, was accidentally destroyed a few years ago.

Robert MORRIS: Roller Disco. Cenotaph for a Public Figure. 1980

Print.
Silkprint on Arches paper. 45.7x60.9 cm, full margins. Editions Schellmann & Kluser, Munich, Germany. Printed by Styia Studios. Edition of 180, numbered, dated and signed in pencil in the lower margin.
Text:
ROLLER DISCO: CENOTAPH FOR A PUBLIC FIGURE
The individual's favorite possessions - the golf clubs, the shoes, the tie pin, the Ferrari, the bowling ball, the art collection, etc. - are carefully sawed in halves. The edges of the cuts are filed or otherwise cleaned to reveal the precise cross-sections of the objects which are then embedded in a transparent plastic matrix. The objects are arranged so that the cross-sections face upward. The matrix forms a vast circular floor and a top layer of smooth, indestructible, transparent plastic is poured as a finish surface. A large building is erected over this floor, a building held up with a maze of elaborate wooden trusses. No pole or column interrupts the floor. The appropriate décor and sound system are installed. A suitable name is found. A discrete advertising campaign is initiated. Only the highest quality roller skates are allowed on the floor.
