"Once There Was a Little Boy and Everything Turned Out Alright. The End. (adjusted to fit, distorted for the time, and for the benefit of Texte zur Kunst)“, 1993/2020 (2020)
The edition that Louise Lawler, a leading representative of what became known as the Pictures Generation, has created for “Texte zur Kunst” uses a two-line text she has revisited and recontextualized several times in her career: “Once there was a little boy and everything turned out alright. THE END.” In this new edition, a photograph of the phrase as a wall installation has been digitally ‘distorted for the times,’ blurring the letters and words into an indistinct dream sequence.
