This little booklet I made in the eighties for Ulises Carrion when I worked in his gallery Other Books And So. It was sent by mail and stamped by the postal system.
Stil one week to go till the 6th of februari. Thanks to Covid we have been open for just one week 🙁 The group show of the Arti Members is very diverse.
Opened to be closed. Thanks to Covid… Hopefully an other chance later.
It’s been quit a while since I was an active mail-art artist. I worked in Other Books And So with Ulises Carrión (his picture on the wall of my studio) and had my share of books, stamps, exhibitions etc.
These questions came in my mind: what is the meaning of mail art nowadays. Esp. in relation to all the communication we already have?
What does it do to for you?
Are there big players?
How does it work today?
How does mail art relate to other artforms?
What a great soundscape by Reniet Vrieze (from the Pilgrims), based on my score The Land, the Lockdown, The revelation.
What a great beautiful composition Thomas Geerts made based on my graphic score: Back to Cranesley/The kiss
Gouaches at the expo at de Boterhal Hoorn. Improvisations/ graphic scores. 21 x 29.7 (in cm.)
Back in Bizznizz! De Boterhal is open! Visitors all afternoon. Got as a response: my work looks as magic realisme (Johfra). Good expression of fear… wonderful combination with sound…
People scanning the codes to listen to the great music of Reniet Vrieze and Thomas Geerts. Hope we keep the energy going!
