MinXus Mail Bag: TY from Mr. Not Hi Ng (San Pablo, California, USA) + Institute of Art Agnosticism Mail-Art Call

MinXus friend Not Hi Ng, founder of the Institute of Art Agnosticism, sent us this thought-provoking correspondence.

Perceptive as always, Not Hi Ng has noted the pattern of binary oppositions that occur in Dkult, Trashpo, and MinXus-Lynxus. According to Dark wall, these were done intentionally by The Architect.

Da Da and Fluxus form a similar (perhaps more dialectic) pattern, if we are to believe art historians. In his work, Not Hi Ng is eradicating or “seeing through” the (false?) oppositional structures. We think this is similar to the current MinXus-Lynxus call for: “No more canons! No more movements!”

Not Hi Ng also thanked us for his selection to the Order of the Tangerine Mink during Solar Festival 2012:

Most certainly the honor is bestowed upon MinXus-Lynxus as we were able to acknowledge Not Hi Ng, an artist and philosopher of striking originality who has helped articulate our views on many subjects:


Not Hi Ng, director of the Institute of Art Agnosticism, is pleased to announce a call for submissions to the Founder’s Day Mail Art Exhibit.  Anyone can be a founder of the Institute of Art Agnosticism you simply need to have found something. Anything, including Nothing, qualifies as something found.

Send Mail Art to:

The Institute of Art Agnosticism
Founder’s Day Mail Art Exhibit
c/o Not Hi Ng
96 Salem Ct.
San Pablo, CA 94806

Deadline for entries is November 30, 2012

No jury, no fees, no returns, any size and format. Documentation will be posted on our blog page (if the work can be scanned by the crappy little scanner at the Institute). All original Mail Art will be exhibited at the Institute during the Founder’s Day Celebration. Date and location of the celebration is yet to be determined.

Here is the link to Not Hi Ng’s call that was posted at Yo Ma:

Thanks Not Hi Ng, and see you in the mail.

    That’s right clever all the same, Empress. The substitute part works perfectly.

    Empress, the Order of the Tangerine Mink represents the “best and brightest” MinXus has to offer. They are your Special Forces or is it your Foreign Legion?

    Légion d’honneur, yes. Legion of the Tangerine Mink. We’ll keep that for a future event.

    Gosh Empress, you’re off on another Secret Mission. That’s clear to see. I can only imagine what sort of havoc & confusion will result from this.

    Keep us posted.

    Rancher, what’s a “mamoir aux visons”?

    Dw, climb back in yer bunk and blow out the lamp.

    The Empress musta token too much o’ her nerve medicine agen. She’ll be lookin for the hair o’ the dog when mornin’ time comes along and you dont wanna serve up them tortillas nether.

    She’s off on another secret mission. Its not just TOXIS anymore. Now the 14 Secret Masters of the World has got her on the radar.

    I hear tell even Monty Cantsin himself has token an interest in why we is turnin up the dust in Texas and lookin into ol’ quack joints down Mexico way.

    Sometimes you gotta decide whether you is lookin ahead on the dusty trail or lookin back.

    Oh dear oh dear oh double dear. Did I write mamoir? I don’t want any scandal about the empress being drunk while on mission so let’s say I ate too much of those chicken sashimi.

    Just watch for red circles Empress. Monty Cantsin always wears a red arm band. He and a fella up in Toronto put out an edict everyone is supposed to use red circles. A red circle is part of the cryptic circles.

    Should I start writing my mamoirs?
    I saw a lot of them red circles after those chicken sashimi. Unfortunately, nothing that can make Minxus proud. Never look back on the dusty trail, Rancher, it will make you dizzy.

      Well I declare words of wisdom from the Empress that ring true and aint in German. (That language does not become you Empress).

      Go a little easy with the chickens, Empress. You know Dw has a thing bout chickens that dont match reason on no ‘count. (I spect maybe he spent some time as a geek with a trvaelin carnival.)
