London Dada resurrect a piece of playful DADA anti art ( Work 152 from Dec 2005, click on Archive above ), taken (stolen) using prohibited (flash) photography from within the dark confines of ” Dali Universe”, then located on the South Bank, London.
We accept Salvador Dali’s stated invitation ( actually printed by Dali Universe heirs on the mount below the miniature ) to steal the famous surrealist’s ideas in the spirit in which it was offered by the artist and claim this to therefore be a genuine ( world’s first ) posthumous art collaboration and with the tacit approval of Dali himself given before his death.
The actual work is in the form of a one-off photo print, 20 X 25cms, mounted, framed and signed with a copy of Salvador Dali’s common art signature alongside that of Michael St.Mark.
