The intrinsic strangeness at the bridge…
Mail art makes the world a town – for Zine 2 and the sad sad story of a painting whose creator could not make up her mind. So he stood in the unemployment Q at the Office of Redundant Paintings. There was only one solution said Whistlers Mother (she moonlights as a mail art recruitment officer) – become a Cut Up.
These are the initial folios received for a mail art call for Zine pages to celebrate the first mail art exhibition here in South Africa. If you wish to submit pages please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you further details. Closing date for this call is the end of August. Pages will be collated in the order in which they are received. All contributors will receive a copy of the Zine – first RCBz – USA (left) and Roland Halbritter (right). Second image, Vittore Baroni (Italy) and Giovanni and Renata StraDA DA (Italy). Third image – John M Bennett (USA) and EGO-TEK (Italy) Fourth Image – David Dellafiora (Field Study) – Australia and Bruno Cassaglia (Italy). Fifth image, Claudio Romeo (Italy) and Cheryl Penn (South Africa). I have also received pages from Tiziana Barrachi which I will post with the next lot. Many thanks everyone.
