Alex Snukal | Me and Julio Down by Diter's Dung Hole
Me and Julio Down by Diter's Dung Hole
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2009
10 x 15 cm
Edition of 25
Snukal responds to a postcard edition originally created by Yoko Ono in 1971 and altered by Diter Rot the following year (see below posts). Making literal a quote from a Julio Cortázar novel that invokes a euphoric epiphany as equivocal to pushing a pebble through one's asshole, Snukal one-up's Diter with a third iteration.
Each card is hand altered by pushing a stone through its centre hole, and with the following silkscreened text:
"…look at the world through the eye of your asshole and you’ll see patterns pretty as can be, the pebble had to pass through the eye of your asshole…"
From Hopscotch, Julio Cortázar, 1966
