11 May SPATIAL POEM. 1976
Osaka: s.p. (Mieko Shiomi), 1976
21x 27.2cm, 72pp and pictorial wrappers. A major documentation by the Fluxus affiliated artist Mieko Shiomi where she wrote to participants the world over to create nine "global events" between 1965 and 1975. Each section has the original request and often a map showing the individual artist's response to Shiomi's letter.
A nice book to which Finlay contributed thus:
Spatial Poem No. 1 Word event 4 - "funnelwhelk" on the mantelpiece in the kitchen of Richard Morgan's house (known as eastview") Strathmiglo Fine, Scotland;
Spatial Poem No. 2 Direction event 4 - a concrete poem:
in Ardgay, Scotland
After that Finlay did not involve himself in the later global events.
VG+ example of an increasingly difficult to find book.
