These objects are highly intimate and domestic, intended for the writer’s home or as gifts for close friends: they do not have a specific date (roughly 1955/1975) or title given by the artist himself. The material used is generally copper wire: his work as a chemist specialized in enameled electrical conductors gave him access to large quantities of scraps and test materials. In the show these objects are treated thusly: not as works of art, but as products of Levi’s fantasy and manual skill: a game, in the broadest and most positive sense of the word.
