MinXus Mail Bag: The Opposite of Trashpo or the Gina Ulgen Fan Club (Norwich, Norfolk, UK)

Gina - 8.4.2015 - 1

Mail art by Gina Ulgen (Norwich, Norfolk, UK)

Gina Ulgen has distinguished herself in mail art with contributions to DKULTUK. Now, an ambitious edition she has released into the network separates her from the trashpack and – if there were ever any doubt – confirms her standing as a highly original collage artist. This “let them eat cake” piece is ubiquitous these days and is receiving high praise. All the same, we will share the copy we received (14/50). We are thrilled that Gina Ulgen kindly thought of us. Visual puns highlight her wry humor:

Gina Ulgen included a card with a note:

She makes a reference to the Postage Due Club:

We do not believe Gina Ulgen is a member of the Postage Due Club and thus has not burdened us with financial obligations (as did Diane Keys for no less than an entire year). This mail art package has a wonderful consistency throughout in terms of aesthetic choices, tone and theme:

And the reverse:

Many thanks to Gina Ulgen!
