Dennis Oppenheim, Flower Arrangement for Bruce Nauman, New York City: Multiples, Inc., 1970. [edition: 1200]

As the title of this work suggests its a work in dialogue with a fellow minimalist/conceptual artist, Bruce Nauman, and a work of his titled "Flour Arrangements" (1967). This work consisted of the photo-documentation of a series of different shaped piles of flour that Nauman had created. Oppenheim's play on Nauman's title offers a different bouquet in which a series of photographs of one particular field of flowers taken over a period of time are stitched together in this seamless accordion.

Single page 6.25" x 9.25", 7 pages, and fully open at 5' 4.75".
