Belgrade, Yugoslavia: Signal, 1972
30 x 21cm, 4pp b/w single number of the influential Signal Gallery journal which displays one of the very earliest Abramovic installations created before she left her land of birth. Two b/w photographs are of a youthful Marina and her modified tape recorder in a space which was hung with white paper to create a minimalist space. Also contains a text by Todorovic in English and Serbo-Croatian. During the show, the recorder taped the “silence” in the room and played it back amplified to the emptiness: the second of Abramovic’s works concerned with “emptiness” . The reference to Cage is obvious. Soon after the artist left for Edinburgh and future fame. Formerly folded and slightly torn along the fold but still an interesting rare document.
