I have been posting the mail art piece compose/decompose to the Animals, people a shared environment exhibition as part of the Australian Animal Study Group 2011 conference exhibition at the POP Gallery and QCA Project Space in Brisbane. There are 20 cards in all and the work is a tribute to the Molluskian Hermaphrohood.
The initial difficulty was locating snails. After a decade of drought and a week of cold weather I only managed to find 4 tiny cone shaped snails from my garden and one mediterranean white and one garden snail from the local park/people’s fences. Project looked like it was heading for disaster until some friends came to the rescue.
Cards 3 and 4 (after addition of 25 snails from Bev and Peter)
