THE ADDRESS IS THE ART - Mark Pawson, 2003-2017 The Address Is The Art is made from nearly three decades worth of collected envelopes
from family, friends,
mailartists from around the world, junk mail, boring letters from the bank and more... Covers are
rubberstamped by hand with the addition of gummed labels
and stickers, I plan to assemble these continuously over the next few years - so there will be variations within the edition - every copy is different.
Signed, numbered, handsewn, edition of 500 copies. 14x20cm, 20 pgs.
REVIEW in Art On Paper (USA), Nov/Dec 2006
Starting with a big stack of secondhand maps of the UK, I've repeatedly printed over them - building up multiple layers of symbols and imagery.
There's new towns - fed with fresh food from the adjacent greenhouses, acres of forests and orchards, thousands of wind turbines, I've built hundreds of museums,
art galleries, bookshops, libraries and reopened Post Offices but there's also surveillence cameras everywhere...
"everybody's mapping nowadays"
is simultaneously idealistic and practical, decorative
and critical.Plus there's Alien visitations, Geodesic dome clusters, flower
bombing, symbol salad and logo clutter, buried treasure and easter eggs.
Screenprinted by hand with hand-drawn elements, laserprint and stickers, each copy is slightly different.
