Literary synopsis

Espahor Ledet Ko Uluner! is a succession of apparently everyday references, with different moods, in a language invented by the artist.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Espahor Ledet Ko Uluner! was presented in 1973 at the Cirrus Gallery in Los Angeles and advertised as a public reading of a novel to be delivered by its author. De Cointet remained invisible and completely absent as the artist in relation to the work, though he had in fact written the novel in a coded language and directed its performance, hiring a dwarf named Billy Barty to play the role of the author.
