Grass, paint, a Bruno Chiarlone stamp, and the text: “From my garden – Ko de Jonge ’86″ on the invitation to participate in Mogens Otto Nielsen’s “Send a piece of your nature”. It might have been around Chiarlone before being sent to Ko de Jonge and finally returned to Nielsen as a piece of mail art.
Welcome to the archiveThe Mogens Otto Nielsen mail art archive contains around 16.000 pieces of mail art from more than 600 artists around the world. At KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art Aalborg in Denmark, it is my job to sort it out, to categorize it, and to make sense of it, without tearing it apart, making it fit too well, or to make sense where there should have been nonsense. I will keep you posted.
