Igor Holin. Collective Action's performans

67. FOR I. KHOLIN

At I. Makarevich’s workshop on a white wall 10 photocopied A2 sheets from the book “Buddhist symbolic” (Palitra, Leningrad, 1991) )were arranged in two rows.

I.Holin who came at an invitation was asked to recite the series of verses titled “Holin” created in early 60s.

During the recital A.M. who was standing behind Holin’s back was coloring the contours of symbols on the photocopied sheets with a golden felt pen. He was also trying to synchronize the time of Holin’s reciting one verse with his coloring one symbol.

Then the papers were taken off the wall, packaged in two cardboard sheets to form a notebook labeled “To I.Holin” and given to the author of the verses.
