ANT VALLEY. UNIQUE MAIL ART WORK. 1985.

£345.00

N.p.: s.p. (Johnson), 1985
22 x 22cm (approx), b/w vintage xerox of an assemblage Johnson made incorporating real dead ants. The page however has been added to in pink crayon by Johnson with the texts “ANT VALLEY” and “NINE DEAD ANTS” (although there are actually only 8 – a typical Johnson joke) with each “ant” circled also in pink. This was an ongoing joke with the recipient Richard Misiano-Genovese to whom Johnson had actually sent real dead ants to in the past. Folded to fit an envelope for mailing else VG+.
