Kinetic Magnetism

Vassilakis Takis

Vassilakis Takis with the present lots first exhibited at Galerie Krikaar in 1967.

The only vision I ever had of magnetism was during a conversation with Takis (...) in his studio, looking at his little metal cones hummingly waveringly pulled by like wires straight at their little magnet fathers: and he, Takis, explained to me that the stars were all pulled together with myriad thin invisible wires of magnetism radiating from every start to every other star.
