“Single Man Looking to the Right,” artist’s statement, 1979 (with subsequent notes)

This artist’s statement was distributed during Prince’s window installation at Three Lives & Company bookstore in the West Village.

COLAB member Alan W. Moore subsequently took notes on the empty reverse sides of several copies, repurposing them into a sort of one-way artistic collaboration.

Front (text by Prince)

All the time, no matter when, he’s trying to think, but can’t remember, except that true poets never work, and he didn’t make that up, but he forgot who did.

His work is made on about the same level as a snake’s decision to crawl on its belly.

Art is in the bone of his shoulder and since he can’t avoid it he tries not to control it.
