The Killing of J.F.K.
New York, The Village
In the New York neighbourhood The Village Jan Fabre asks for a gun in one of the local bars. With this gun the artist shoots at a dollar coin with the portrait of JFK. Upon his return to Belgium this coin is hung up in an art gallery.
'During the day, my first action in NYC.
I shoot John Fitzgerald Kennedy through
the head (a $1 coin).
During the night the first series of drawings
I have created on American soil.
They are blood drawings
(a tribute to the American Indians).'
(Jan Fabre, New York, 27 October 1980)
