MinXus Mail Bag: Minimalism Less than Zero by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Richard - 12.19.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Richard Canard has ridden many successive mail-art waves. As a result, he has acquired a useful tool box of avant techniques and has even managed to contribute a few. His forays into minimalist poetry are always of interest, and this example we share with you today might well be an outlier – even for Richard Canard. He pushes the envelope of the minimal into the domain of absence so that we are confronted with the unadorned materials of mail-art. We might consider this a “Nothing” as opposed to a “Happening,” although good conceptual art has a way of raising complex questions with complicated answers.

So we submit this unusual item to the formidable Richard Canard canon and add many thanks to him for sending.
