This 4 color risograph print is from the series “Thrown Into The Sea”—a response and reflection on Lawrence Weiner’s 1968 work “One Standard Air Force Dye Marker Thrown Into The Sea.” The text by Weiner was acted out one year later, when the artist threw a red dye marker into the sea during his exhibition at the Nova Scotia College of Art in Halifax. The 23 prints from this series by duo Gloria Glitzer were compiled as close-ups alongside a letter by Weiner written to conceptual artist On Kawara in a limited edition artists’ book of the same name.
Gloria Glitzer is an independent publishing duo based in Berlin. Operated by the artists Franziska Brandt (b. 1978) and Moritz Grünke (b. 1980), they develop, design, and print artists’ books as an artistic practice.
