Please Add To & Return To: Mail Art Homage to Ray Johnson
Printed Matter, New York, USA
October 27 - November 28th
The exhibition on view extends a component of Johnson’s mail art practice in which he distributed “templates” with the instructions “Please Add To.” The artist would send these photocopies of his original drawings en masse via USPS, instructing recipients to “Return To Ray Johnson” or forward to someone else entirely. Upon return of work, Johnson would typically photocopy and recirculate the altered versions or add them to his archive.

Transhumance in the city, animalisms across four art mediums, wholly collective, fundamentally collaborative – the Wildermenn produce artworks that subvert and celebrate the rituals and rites which are essentially linked to that which is forgotten in the sprawl – fertility, procreativity, seasons, elements, creatureliness and death. Anthropomorphic modernist folk practise from cultures now unknown find form in sculpture, noise, performance, fragmented poetry and
SERIES HUTTE Geopoetic poems navigating through the Picard region via diversion of Scotland, England and Syria. English vocabulary mutated by French; these poems are in want of Picardian. There are undeniable byproducts that this route gave opportunity to explore.
& MEMORY LANDSCAPES recollect from the banks of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. Her broad, flat, horizon allow a quiet ground for subconscious breathing. The ebb and flow of the tide causes scrolling images to jostle for position and collapse into each other.
Gilles de Rais
"During the Southbank Centre's epic Poetry Parnassus in June this year each of the visiting poets from around the world handwrote a poem on handmade paper to create a one-off edition for the Poetry Library collection called The World Record.
If you missed this mass arrival of world poets in June then here's a second chance to experience the festival. Read the poems that the poets handwrote and watch videos of the poets performing.
There is also a video of the incredible sight of the Rain of Poems in which poems by all of the poets were dropped from a helicopter over London's Jubilee Gardens.
The poets have also been photographed by Alexander Kell and captured in the artworks of David Kelly-Mancaux."
