Art’s 1.000.058th birthday

Post van HOK-Gallery:

“A lockdown does not freeze art motion. HOK’s project to celebrate Art’s 1.000.058th birthday on the 17th of January has resulted in a true carousel of mail art. A post on the Vancouver world celebration of Art’s website, a two-hour Fluxus show on the Dutch radio, and a string of messages on social media, has not gone unnoticed. Art poured in from all over the world. Some 50 works of art from all over the world arrived at HOK’s tiny PO Box. From Serbia to the United States, from Sweden to the United Kingdom. And all these works were forwarded by HOK to other artists. Give a present, get a present, birthday-wise. And that in a specially designed envelope by Dutch FLUXUS artist Bob Lens, Riso-printed by Stencilwerck, and with an HOK postal stamp designed by HOK’s artist in residence Lula Valletta. A work of art in itself as a gift for everyone who participated. The complete chain of mail art is to be gazed at here. “

Sympathieke actie waaraan ik graag heb mee gedaan met twee tekeningen:

Kees Koomen: Outside in – inside out – 2021
Kees Koomen: Inside out – Outside in – 2021

En waarvoor ik vervolgens een enveloppe ontving met ontwerp van Bob Lens en poststempel van Lula Valletta:

en daarin deze tekening ontving uit de USA die weer sterke YSLAND-sentimenten bij me opwekte:

Robin Nelson: Across the Pond – 2021
