Acconci Vito (1940— ).     Pages: 1


U.S. artist, 1st noticed as a poet (1964—8), who then turned to Performance, Installation and Action and Body art (1969) attracted by the experimentation of groups such as The Judson Church, and the conceptual framework established by such artists as LeWitt, Andre, R. Morris, Kosuth, Weiner, D. Graham, Oppenhenn and Burden. His most notorious work in the 1970s was Seedbed (1972) in which he lay under the floor of the gallery loudly voicing his sexual fantasies while masturbating. In the 1980s he started making constructions, e.g. Sub-Urb (1983) and furniture, e.g. Sleeping Dog Couch (1984).
