Nick West, ‘Phone’ (1998) London, UK

In 1998, Nick participated in a group exhibition at the Decima Gallery in London Bridge. For his work, he employed a BT engineer to install a new telephone line at the gallery. Nick attached a phone to this line and hung it on the wall, above which he screen printed the message “For more information, please call..” alongside his home phone number. During the opening reception, visitors left many messages on his answerphone but failed to reach the artist, as he was out.
