Mail Art in For July & August

Pedro Bericat is a Sound Artist based in Zaragoza, Spain. His Mail Art never ceases to surprise and intrigue me, often combining what looks like discarded food with his transparent laminating technique and throw away materials.

Otto Sherman’s ‘Stamp Art’ is edgy and colourful, juxtaposing montage images of familiar icons, such as a Berlosconi clown like face or unlikely rescuing George Bush. On this occasion, Sherman included a hand made book, recounting  a disturbing narrative. The Procession of the Damners (I think is written) on the front cover, with figures sleeping walking, one after another.  His work poses questions and reflection.

Based in Brazil, The Celestial Scribe presents a hand made envelope from a  recycled page from a magazine.  The image I pulled from inside the letter at first appeared alarming and then absolutely intriguing.  I   tried  to work out the image and the additional collaged images the Scribe had made.

Val Herman’s light hearted approach to making Mail Art is a reminder to the viewer of the inclusive nature of making mail art, the ideas and production are all relevant.

Emily Coles has been a contributor to the WW1 Mail Art Trench Art project for some time.  In her recent submission, her contributions appears to be made from recycled dried tea bags, which appear to effect the colours chosen and textured feel of the work.

Marie Vailhe uses images from a German produced ‘Zine’ dated from WW1 which acts as propaganda that was distributed in three languages to the local inhabitants in France & Belgium.

Eileen McCaffery alternatively presents British propaganda and the lengths taken to pressure men into signing up, including the stories of women in the streets presenting men of age, out of uniform with white feathers, indicating their distaste at the presumed cowardice.
