2013 article in STATE issue 1 on Billy Apple, page 12

 

'In London in 1962, I began an extended work which was part of an effort to break down the separation between "art activity" and "life activity", I decided to use my own identity as the vehicle with which to explore the concept of the artist as "art object".'
