£15.00

Vancouver: Eye Scream/ N. E. Thing, 1977
15.5 x 12.5cm,, 1pp. Full colour photographic card with an image of the punningly titled restaurant at night. N.E. Thing Co.’s Eye Scream was a restaurant/artwork opened in 1977 in Vancouver. It closed after a year and a half and was an odd form of conceptual art cum performance. In part an evolution of the organisation status of the work of Ian and Ingrid Baxter where “The Thing” was legally incorporated in 1969 and had subunits with officers and stationery for sub divisions. Eye Scream was a functioning building which was open for individual action – and a number of items such as food bowls could be obtained. VG+ condition. Scarce.
