Mail art by Andre Rober (Ille-sur-Tet, France)
The Karnival of Trash exhibition attains a new level of excellence with the arrival of work by French poet, essayist, visual poet and artist Andre Rober. He is, indeed, also a participant in the international mail-art network. This is a most welcome surprise!
The piece is destined for the DKULTNY fanzine, but the Karnival of Trash provides an ideal opportunity to share the work with a larger audience. Andre Rober has taken a familiar mail-art icon and subverted the intention in much the same way that Trashpo subverts the Ray Johnson add&pass concept and even traditional notions of art.
We had no idea Andre Rober was aware of Trashpo or DKult, so the work is of great interest and deeply appreciated. He certainly has an understanding of the Trashpo concept. If you are not familiar with the work of Andre Rober, it is well-worth the time to explore:
