The multiple spaces of monitor based installation
CATHERINE ELWES
 The multiple spaces of monitor based installation 
In 1962 the French artist Csar Balduccini mounted a functioning television set on a plinth made out of compressed, industrial metalwork. The television was stripped of its casing and the whole assemblage enclosed in a plexiglas housing with apertures left for the aerial and control knobs. The work entitled Tlvision was exhibited in a gallery and subjected to the artist’s contempt for broadcast media, which he expressed by threatening the TV with a gun.
