Mail art, or postal art, was best known in the 1960s when many artists sent their works to different places, independently without support from galleries or the art scene. The concept is not new; rather it has been in existence since the invention of postal air mail and possibly even earlier. The allure is perhaps not exclusive to the final production but in the process of its creation, posting and receiving. It is perhaps in the anticipation of something that another individual has created and has travelled over distances of time and space. In this Mail Art Project, twenty artists from twelve different countries participated in a year-long project that had each of them creating one work over a period of 12 months. From August 2014 to July 2015, each of the twenty artists made a work to a maximum size of A4 (30 x 20 cm) and sent it as it appeared without encasing it in padded envelopes for protection. This approach took away the notion of art as a precious commodity and that it should be carefully handled. It was therefore possible to be damaged before it reached its intended destination. The wear-and-tear on its arrival is evidence of its journey and gave it an added history to their creation.
