    In discussion of his approach, performance artist Bruce Nauman has stated, "I [am] using my body as a piece of material and manipulating it. I think of it as going into the studio and being involved in some activity. Sometimes it works out that the activity involves making something, and sometimes the activity itself is the piece." Accordingly, the five images in the current lot document the artist’s organic approach to his work, pushing the limits of his skin, and consequently, his art.

    Other sets of the five screenprints are in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Tate Collection, London.
