Printed Matter Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of the work of German artist Michalis Pichler this Saturday, January 21 from 5 to 7 PM. i fell in love, i fell out of love, 100$, potato chips, airplanes, clouds & sky, the name of the exhibition, is also the title of an ephemeral newspaper piece published on the occasion of the exhibition and designed to be given away at Printed Matter. At the opening reception we will also celebrate the launch of two books by Pichler, both published in 2005 by Revolver: "WAR"diary and New York Garbage Flag Profile. Printed Matter is located at 195 Tenth Avenue at 22nd Street.
In the New York Times Flag Profile, all 144 of the American flags from the New York Times issued on the first anniversary of September 11 have been cut out and pasted into a newspaper with everything else left blank.
Initially it was a handmade object, which involved meticulous handiwork and was relatively fragile.
The Production of a printwork in a larger edition made it possible to distribute the work to a broader audience for the price of $1.
In the beginning it sold mostly through exhibitions.
