Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: Trashpo Gutai by Tomoe Nakamura (Osaka, Japan)

 

Mail art by Tomoe Nakamura (Osaka, Japan)

In Trashpo circles, Japanese trash is a rare commodity: often discussed, seldom seen. In these, the final hours of the Karnival of Trash, Tomoe Nakamura has sent a masterpiece that will surely be pure magic to the Trashpo fan. Coming in the wake of Wendy Rodgers’ work, I note a strong Gutai element in this piece, which is grounded in classic Trashpo. Conceptual art, minimalism and Fluxus contribute to the aesthetic. Above all else, Tomoe Nakamura’s bag is wonderfully subtle and sensual.

Tomoe Nakamura is a very fine and serious painter. Fortunately for the Eternal Network, she has an interest in mail art and participates in various ways. Most of the contents of the envelope:

Tomoe - 6.5.2017 - 4

Individual “performances” are within:
