    Manipulating the Self

    1973
    Offset lithograph on paper: 734 x 585 mm
    Edition of 65 plus A/Ps, signed (rubber-stamped) and numbered
    Published by Galerie B, Montreal
    Reproduces a selection of photographic responses received from the mail art project

    Manipulating the Self (Phase I - A Borderline Case)

    . Each of the prints is hand-titled "Manipulating the Self," some with Galerie B rubber-stamp. Approximately 5 to 10 copies were altered by the publisher, Roger Bellemare of Galerie B. In pencil, he crossed out the word "Self" and wrote "Scene" because he thought the work would sell better this way, an action to which the artists agreed.
