Sal Sem Carne

Rio de Janeiro: Pesquisa, 1975. 12” LP in photographically illustrated sleeve, with insert. LP-CM-003. Though unstated, reportedly to 100 copies.

The first and only edition of this artists’ record, which documents the massacre of the indigenous Krahó through rituals and narrative accounts. Like his early Insertion in Ideological Circuits series involving messages on currency, the work forces the consumer to confont the realities of their participation in these systems. A legendary artists’ record in the narrative of Latin-American conceptual art and also in the history of artists’ records, and rare in the marketplace. The last copy we know of that appeared for sale was a copy which sold at Phillips for 15,000 pounds.

The photographically illustrated sleeve is VG+ with some light creasing, but no split seams. The insert is vg+ with a couple faint smudges. The vinyl is VG with some light surface marks, adding a light crackle to several passages. Item #26667
