El desarrollo artístico de Vito Acconci sigue un recorrido singular y complejo. Inició su trayectoria artística como poeta a mediados de los años sesenta. En sus creaciones trataba la página en blanco como un espacio en el que se podía actuar, utilizando las palabras como elementos para el movimiento, y la página como un contenedor.

Sus acciones poéticas se desplazaron del papel al espacio de la galería, evolucionando hacia las performances en las cuales reflexionaba en torno a su propio ser físico y psicológico. Tanto en las performances como en sus instalaciones de primeros de los años setenta, la figura del artista siempre se encontraba presente, fuera físicamente fuera a través de filmaciones o de grabaciones de su voz, cuyo sonido ofrecía al visitante una experiencia sensorial intensa. Proponía una nueva definición del objeto material y un espacio de experiencias comunes entre el espectador y el artista al borrar las fronteras tradicionales entre un artista y su público, un objeto y un acontecimiento temporal, una obra de arte y su existencia en un contexto espacial y/o social.

Su interés por el espacio se orientó hacia el encargo público. En 1988 creó el Acconci Studio, célula de trabajo que agrupaba a arquitectos y artistas cuyas investigaciones se desarrollan a escala arquitectural y proponen intervenciones de tipo medioambiental y arquitectónico. El poder de las propuestas del Acconci Studio en las que el artista mantiene su compromiso con el lenguaje, el cuerpo y su relación con el espacio, consiste en repensar drásticamente las definiciones de espacio público y hacer tambalear nuestra percepción del mismo y su uso.

housing as part of the space, yet at the same time
the architects wanted to bring housing into another time,
a current time. starting points were the terracing hills.
acconci studio built houses into the ‘steps’ (of the hills).

‘mur’ island, 2003 graz, Austria courtesy acconci studio © vito acconci.
the shell contains an open-air theatre. underneath the dome, one finds a café,
and a fantastic landscape for children has been created in the small area
where these two forms intersect, the zones gradually merge.
around the island flows water, the architects construct an object that is
also flowing and changeable. what makes the island so exciting is not only
its combination of interior/exterior but also the new perspectives it provides
of the city.

a place where you can touch the store as well as the product.

the kind used for rear screen projection.

‘where are we now (who are we anyway?), 1976

‘a plank that changes function: it starts by settling into
the room as a table, eight stools on either side – but it
doesn’t stop there, it continues toward the window,
extends out the window and becomes a diving board.’

‘seedbed’ installation/performance, january 1972 (at the sonnabend gallery).

acconci lay hidden masturbating while vocalizing into a loudspeaker
his fantasies about the visitors walking above him on the ramp :
over the course of three weeks, he masturbated eight hours a day while
murmuring things like, ‘you’re pushing your cunt down on my mouth’ or
‘you’re ramming your cock down into my ass.’
in ‘seedbed’ acconci is the producer and the receiver of the work’s pleasure.
he is simultaneously public and private.

‘following piece’, 1969
courtesy acconci studio © vito acconci.
‘following piece’ documents a performance, in the course of the action,
the artist followed different people in the street.
the action stopped suddenly, each time the person entered a private space.
with this simple gesture, acconci transcends the relativity of the learned
rules and behaviors concerning the distinction between private and public.
the act of following could last a few minutes, if the person then got into a car,
or four or five hours, if the person went to a cinema or restaurant.
acconci carried out this performance everyday for a month.
and he typed up an account of each ‘pursuit’, sending it each time to a different
member of the art community.
the concept was of the participation of persons who did not specifically agree
to participate. it relied on persons who did not even know that they were being used.
