"Edition of 250. Collaboration between the conceptual artist Alexandra Phillips and the legendary Jan Henderikse (1937) founder of the Dutch Zero group. An incredible audio montage of hundreds of clips with I and You
"Jan Henderikse (1937) is one of the founders of the Nederlandse Nul-beweging, the Dutch branch of the international Zero-group, active from 1960 to 1966. Henderikse has radically banned notions of authenticity, uniqueness and personal expression from his work since. Appropriation and recontextualisation of everyday materials, such as discarded objects and found photos and film footage, are a key strategy in Henderikses varied body of work. His work often has a deadpan sense of humour. Henderikse is the Buster Keaton of Zero.
You & I is a collaboration of Jan Henderikse and partner-in-crime Alexandra Phillips, a young American artist who currently lives in The Netherlands. Released by Slowscan as vol. 41, one side of this 10” black vinyl edition consists of a collage of the word you culled from all sorts of existing records, and a collage of the word I on the flip side. You & I is a beautiful piece of work with an iron inner logic and a warm sense of humour. The 10” comes with an insert by Pure Propaganda, a magazine run by Henderikse and Phillips. You & I. Always."
