I think you know me wellnough to know thatI am sincere and am not trying to create an issue where there is none or to take onnecessarily of your time. My nain concern was for the integrity of my art. Of course I want to eell a plece to the Fogg as I need the support and of course I would 1ike this piece in the collect ion or else I would not have brought it. consider It & very important piece in the development of my art. resistance s that the piece has a life outside of me and I'm obligated to tol lowits course St was created from a Rauschenberg and a Johns two Involved in Cagels "First Meeting of the Satie Society". As you Joved the art of John Cage and Cage in turn respected me. He ood these issues off ownership and he understood that that concept as part f our problem and that it may not be a relevant or useful in a fubo ce world. My piece in the Satie was to illustrate the OL Genosi and to create art from art. As you know I also cooked the edible drawing. This is not unfamiliar territory. Ha imy previouaemails I said that I relinquish claims of ownership and Plage in your hands. Its important that I do that. I will send you those siqued omails so that you might feel free to do with the piece what ydb want. Hopefully you will have the ability as a curator to 2esponeLbly determine what should be done with this now orphaned piece. 2vould be nice if someone could claim it on behalf of that future 752adent/scholar" because that's to whom it truly belongs. My lawyer 14ex Kovel Yale, Harvard, Oxford) could help if the legality is somehow Ae to purchasing a piece I will have one that I will own though have not yet produced. I decided that I will take Brigitta's portrait this week. Untilnow I wanted to be very careful not to use her for my art. I must move from here the 7th and I give up my large now borrowed camera and my Borrokedtudio then. In the future I plan to work with roll film, work at the Museun School, and start anew. Brigitta has been very very Important e. As important as Paul Strand's Rebecca. I feel my best werk is ead of me and the relevance of her portrait to my work is that SE I produce significant work in the future she in no small part made St possibl Let me know hat you think I would love to reach a conclusion and embrace my oture. sincerely and thank you Michael 07/11/2000 3:23 AM 1 of 1
