James Lee Byars / Extra Terrestrial


ICC , Antwerp

15 May 1976 - 13 June 1976

Extra Terrestrial is the first exhibition where an official institute displays such a large number of documents, objects and performances by James Lee Byars. The exposition itself takes over the whole ground level of the I.C.C. and shows several remarkable works like The intellectual Murder Shoes and The Perfect Circle. In addition there are a numerous amount of videotapes, pictures and printed material documenting the artists' earlier performances. As an important part of the show, Byars included a number of site specific performances, namely: The Perfect Performance (is to Stand Still), The Perfect Place (is on Top of Your Head) and of course the most impressive The Extra-terrestrial Man, also known as the Black Giant of Antwerp.
