EARLY GALLERY ACTIVITY – 1968

Paris: s.p. (Paul-Armand Gette) 1970 10.5 x 13.5cm, 1pp b/w photographic image (taken by Gette) of a bag or some paper blowing past trees and part of the stonework in the Parc Buttes-Chaumont. This was from the second Promenade which took place around May 1970 when Gette joined Christian Boltanski and Jean Le Gac for a dérive (which had previously been used as means to creativity by both the surrealists and the situationists).  During the walk, Boltanski placed some balls of dried earth in an alleyway, PA Gette hung some crystals  and Le Gac documented part of the journey by taking photographs.  On the back of the card there is a message hand-written by Turid (wife of Paul-Armand Gette)in black ink to Paule Léon Bisson-Millet. VG+. Very rare.  ...

17 x 8cm, 6pp. Announcement card printed black on beige with a detailed reproduced drawing by Romero over the inner pages. The gallery logo of a sunflower is on the front of the card - and there is a possibility that that drawing was by Boltanski. VG+. Rare.
