2003 -> Ongoing
In 2003 a holiday project at the University of Brighton titled 'Location Vocation Vacation' called for mail art. One post card per week was to be sent as a document of experiences to Margaret Huber, the then second year Illustration tutor.
Over two hundred A6 sized 'cards' have since been sent (and received) from all over the world. Hair, fish, a sachet of white powder, a piece of broken record, mossy bark... Only some six cards have never reached their destination. Margaret still receives mail at irregular intervals.
The cards will be exhibited from 5th September until 7th October 2012 at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York. Welcome to the private view of 'POST', 5th of September 2012, 6-9pm at 127 Elizabeth Street, 10013, NY.
The exhibition catalogue has been generously supported by the Consulate General of Finland in New York.
A selection of the cards has been published in the book POSTCARD by Laurence King Publishing in 2008.
