It’s been a long while since I did a ‘rhyme’ on MAN, so here’s a reminder of the rubric: I used to feature two (or more) images that had something to do with one another. Usually there was some kind of art historical relationship, either one that was documented or that just simply had to be there. Sometimes there was not. Later, Lawrence Weschler, who also had a longtime interest in this kind of visual randomness, published a super book that similarly explored the fluidity of images. Today’s rhyme:
This is Yves Klein’s Leap into the Void (1960). It was first published in “Dimanche,” Klein’s 1960 newspaper-cum-artist’s-book.
