PUT FINGER IN. 1994. A MAIL ART ITEM CREATED FROM A GALLERY MAILING

£100.00

Basel: s.p. (Ay-o), 1994
Original 11.5 x 21.5cm, white envelope which have been rubber stamped by Ay-o with his name logo and the phrase “put finger (symbol) in” on the front. Inside is a 21 x 10.5cm, 6pp museum brochure from the Kunsthalle Basel which has one leaf announcing the future exhibition by Ay-o. Ay-o has punched a hole in the front page of the brochure and has rubber stamped underneath it the text “put finger (symbol) in” – hence creating one of his famous finger boxes albeit it in printed form and with a hole that is too small for an actual finger. Fine condition – unmailed – the number of such mail art works is unknown.
