In honor of the exact 50 year anniversary TO THE DAY of the Nam June Paik piece “One for Violin Solo,” C Mehrl Bennett smashed a violin onto a wooden table on front stoop of her home in Columbus OH USA. This event came off in collusion with the fluxus micro fest in nyc (between 2pm and 4pm, June 16; hosted by Jane Wang with special guest, Bibiana Padilla Maltos) as part of Mark Bloch’s “Öne for Violin Ensemble.”
Notice the three curlique branches of ceramic mobile echo the two F holes of the violin. C made that mobile years ago. Birds & maple leaves move in the wind which helps mark the time element. Encore involves glueing violin back together and mailing it (in it’s case with it’s bow) to Mark Bloch or Bibiana Padilla Maltos. Part II is in the works.
