New York: 1990. Two 8 1/2 x 11" sheets, with typewritten and holograph additions, constituting a missive to William Levy. With the original mailing envelope, addressed and postmarked to the Levy family.
The first flyer announces "piero heliczer's mysterious reappearance" on December 12th at the Knitting Factory, and is illustrated with a photomontage of the Beatles slongside a youthful image of Heliczer in graduation garb. The verso is illustrated with a four panels reproducing a photograph of Andy Warhol, which may be xerox art specific to this example of the flyer, as the only other exampe of this flyer we've previously handled had a blank verso. On the verso commences a typewritten letter from Heliczer to Levy, about impotent art vampires. The rest of the letter is taken up with a lewd joke about nuns, which runs off the page and continues on the verso of the flyer described below, along with another joke and a short handwritten inscription.
The second flyer announces "Piero Heliczer's Christmas Show", and is illustrated with a photocollage incorporating a Dezo Hoffmann photo of the Beatles against the Seine river. The verso prints a lengthy self-penned CV describing Heliczer's career, along with the conclusion of the letter described above.
One of the best and most revealing examples of correspondence we've seen from Heliczer, revealing of his relationship to other artists and also his superb use of figures from pop culture in his work.
Each flyer folded several times for mailing, and toned. Envelope roughly opened and toned. Very good. Item #25896
