Coco Go aka
Fresh Cuts: Tagli Freschi

Cage, Duchamp, Fluxus da fondo a caso, da capo, tutte precedente esperienze gestiti: fare, stare, sentire, strappare, tagliare, scoprire—nascondere tra tagli spioncini, Il lettore esplosivo, trasvolgente, integrativo, honorato, riaperto, ritornato, risognato, ricambiato, rimprovviso, risupposto, ri-in gioco—richiavato nel suo pianoforte Rosso allungato a 6 metri, tesi a lungo cinque gambe cinque piedi per la collaborazione invitata alla Galleria VisioniAltre 
Mostra 1-13 Febbraio 

Invented this form. I began cutting my best loved & lived books in 2018 as a project to let go of them,
surprising myself by exploding outward, following clues of the books themselves to retain the essence I felt of them.

In 1981, I had cut centers the shape of fruits out of old paperback books & placed mushrooms at the centers
then filled my red paper piano keyboard with a proactive healing aim to stop clear-cutting forests.
This first pass of flowering out & opening the insides to view, is for honoring Fluxus friends.
