Artist Nam June Paik Giardino di Daniel Spoerri

Nam June Paik

Born 20th July, 1932 in Seoul (Korea). He lived in New York and died in Florida in 2006.

Paik was one of the leading representatives of Fluxus and video-art (since 1963); his multi-monitor-installations are famous. His tribute to the »Giardino«is based on an instruction given to Daniel Spoerri in his absence. Being asked to think about a work of art for Spoerri´s garden, Nam June Paik answered: »Tell him to make something as big as the Eiffel-Tower!« – When he received this message Spoerri interpreted it his way.
