I GOT UP consists of stamped postcards—stating time, venue, sender, and addressee—sent twice a day by Kawara from cities all over the world to friends and acquaintances.

I WENT documents the distances covered daily by the artist, marked in photocopies of city maps. Horizontality and Perpendicularity covers both process-projects, combining a postcard and a city map for each day. French novelist and theorist Michel Butor contributes with an essay on Kawaras extremely systematic art—which recalls, in its way, Butors experiments with the nouveau roman (or new novel) in the 1950s and 1960s.

Beautiful and necessary, Horizontality and Perpendicularity is an impressive testament to Kawaras dismantling of the boundaries between art and life.
