Shelley Jackson talks with Vito Acconci VA: "The way I thought of pieces like Following Piece was, there’s a city out there. I attend to this city. How do I key myself into this city. How do I tie myself into this city. I can pick out people in this city to follow."

Wow. There were times when that was like reading something out of City of Glass.

Interesting post.

Ahhh!

I saw a Vito Acconci show in the early 80's at the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati.

I forget the what the pieces were (Vito hanging himself from a thousand tiny fish-hooks? Wait... was it the one where visitors crushed him beneath the floor as they entered the room?), but I remember it fueled my deep hatred of "conceptual art," and made me embrace more representation forms.

What a goof!
