The Chair, 1975

Author: Jack Goldstein

Film 16 mm, in colour, silent. 5’

This can be considered to be one of the best examples of postconceptual work in the seventies and eighties. The artist drops coloured confetti over a chair covered with a layer of shiny black paint.

Jack Goldstein was a magician who took the guise of many different entities: a cinematographic ghost, a piece of confetti, a drawing on translucent paper, a ray, a shadow, an experimental artist with no money, a promising talent, a wealthy painter, a provocateur and an artiste maudit.
