Pistoletto, Michelangelo

Sculpture for Strolling (1995)

After reading the daily newspaper, immerse it in water then form a small sphere by compressing the wet newspaper with one’s hands.

Enlarge the sphere by adding new daily newspapers soaked in water. Continue this procedure until the sphere is a meter in diameter.

When well dried out, roll the newspaper sphere outside in the streets and the squares as a “sculpture for strolling.” Every public institution that realizes Michelangelo Pistoletto’s “Sculpture for Strolling” in the do it context, in which daily newspapers appear on the surface, can use the sphere permanently after the exhibition. The results, and the documents in all forms of use and interaction, must be sent to Michelangelo Pistoletto, via Serralunga 27 13900 BIELLA, Italia, Tel 0039 015 26324.

This right, extending beyond the limited time of the exhibition is bestowed by the artist upon payment of U.S. $3,000.00 in the following account: # 18298, Banca Brignone, Via Alfieri 17, 10121 Torino, (I), Bank Code 03060/01000.
