UNIQUE MAIL ART. 1968. SENT BY BEN VAUTIER TO TOMAS SCHMIT.

£480.00

Nice: S.p. (Vautier), 1968

11.3 x 14.4cm, transparent envelope with glued on address label (to Tomas Schmit In Germany) and tipped on stamp content of two 10.5 x 14cm, 1pp printed cards by Ben about correspondence art (CORRESPONDANCE = ART = IDEE) and DES GESTES, EVENMENTS, HAPPENINGS DE RUE.

Additional is a colour vintage commercial postcard of the cathedral in Algers and five irregularly torn pieces of newspaper articles which are folded to fit the envelope.

Finally Ben has added a short cut up section of film (4.5 x 1.5cm) with 6 frames of images of himself.

An unique mail art work – similar in some respects to others sent out at the same time but each with unique contents (others do not seem to have the film strip) sent to a Fluxus friend. All in very good condition if one takes into account the roughly torn nature of some of the papers. The envelope has some minor wear from the mailing experience and the stamp is franked 1968.
