MinXus Mail Bag: Washington, DC Gutai Trashpo by WA Rodgers (Takoma Park, Maryland, USA)

Mail-art by WA Rodgers (Takoma Park, Maryland, USA)

Many Tenderfoots will surely remember when WA Rodgers rocked the Eternal Network with her amazing Trashpo-Gutai synthesis. We do not recall any mail-art exchanges with her since those haughty salad days; however, we have managed to stay loosely connected with her via the aether. Then, suddenly, to our complete delight, we received this postcard-size work from WAR.

While compressed in comparison to her Gutai masterpiece of yore, this piece sparkles with the same brilliance and originality. Tenderfoots will note the “distressed” nature of the apparently found but contextually appropriate material. WA has not abandoned the Gutai aesthetic: decomposing art and text.

This Trashpo is situationist as well. Takoma Park is actually very close to Washington, DC. We think, technically, it might even be “inside the Beltway.” This missive led us to ponder the implications of a DKult Chapter in the capitol of the USA and to treasure even more this Washington, DC Trashpo.
