Subject Description: In AA Bronson's words: 'He [Felix] is arranged to receive visitors, and his favorite objects are gathered about him; his television remote control, his tape-recorder, and his cigarettes. Felix suffered from extreme wasting, and at the time of his death his eyes could not be closed: there was not enough flesh left on the bone.' This powerful portrait symbolizes the passing of General Idea as an entity. The artist states: 'Dear Felix, by the act of exhibiting this image in this exhibition I declare that we are no longer of one mind, one body. I return you to General Idea's world of mass media, there to function without me.'
