MinXus Mail Bag: The Victorian DaDa Revival continues with Gin (Knoxville, Tennessee, USA)

Mail-art by Gin (Knoxville, Tennessee, USA)

Actually, we can’t claim a Victorian DaDa Revival is happening; but this FAB work by our Southern correspondent, Gin, makes us feel like a revival in spirit. As Tenderfoots might recall, in a previous post we were searching for words to describe what Gin is doing in her completely unique mail-art collages. Resorting to principles borrowed from Retro-Futurism, we settled upon “Victorian Dada.” The terms has stuck and even, as they say, has legs, although no one has yet arrived at a satisfactory definition of “Victorian Dada,” other than it is what Gin makes and she is the acknowledged master. The fan base is growing. This recent work received is another stellar example.

Deepest thanks to Gin! We look forward to more exchanges.
