Objects on Plinths

a burned justice (Jannis Kounellis) at Brandhorst Museum, Munich
where they also had

a paint splattered parrot (Jannis Kounellis)

Amore, (Jeff Koons)

a dog, (Rosemarie Trockel)

a grave (Cy Twombly)

 outside the Musee de l'art moderne de la ville de Paris, AIDS (General Idea)

on the street in St Germain, a hair roller building (Sylvie Fleury)
(it's not a building but it looks identical to my Tube House, so maybe it is)

 at the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, a monitor playing a video of a solar power boombox abandoned at the North Pole, (Joanna Malinowska) 

then at Pinakotek der Moderne in Munich, 
a tortured head Georg Baselitz)

somebody whose name I forgot to jot down

another nobody kneeling, crawling

a slave, (Henri Matisse)

a scatter of letters (Alix Delmas, also from ECLV
as curated by great Paul Ardenne)
in Versailles, a building on a marble piece of paper, 
eventually on top of a plinth, 
eventually rounding off a list that could only fnd closure with
the uber-object on a plinth, Hans Haacke's Condensation Cube. 
An empty plexiglass box with some H2O 
that goes from mist to drops over and over again.
