  • description

    Indeterminate States is a series of exhibitions and projects aiming for gathering visual artists from different backgrounds. It initiated with an exhibition as the result of a spontaneous cyanotype workshop in Porto, Portugal, in 2020, and ever since, it’s main objective is to bring together various visual approaches starting from technique, interpreting a subject or exploring a specific aspect. Through Mail Art, being constrained by the format of the works, Indeterminate States 5 is looking for single color-based images, regardless of technique (although digital approaches are very welcome). Depending on the number of works received, the team will install the postcards altogether in a polyptych, in April 2023 (@ Drossu Art Gallery in Iasi).

    We are currently working on funding for the project, we hope to be able to edit a catalog with all the participants. However, if not printed, all the participants will receive an electronic version of the catalog.

    As a starting point for this 5th chapter, I invite artists to reflect upon the concepts of humanity, identity, and the importance of nature. Every interstice and nuance of the mentioned themes are open for representation.

  • extra

    Artwork will be included in an international archive and proposed for other exhibitions. In the event of a new exhibition, the participant artists will be notified.

    Please send the postcards to the address above mentioned. Please consider writing your e-mail address on the back of the postcards (in order to receive the digital catalog)

    Send only works based on a single color. It may include shades or tones, but we aim for monochromatic.

  • description

    Fingerprints identify us, distinguish us, reveal us while describing our trail, our path, our wanderings... It seems vital and necessary to pass through this world leaving a positive residue, an essence of our own, an emotional perfume, a particular way of being. Go through this world LEAVING A MARK. Fingerprints, handprints, footprints, heart prints, soul prints... The poet Antonio Machado speaks to us about the unmarked footprints and paths, about the open and shared footprints of our lives, in his remarkable poem: “Walker, they are your footprints / the path and nothing else; / walker, there is no path, the path is made by walking". Let's follow in his footsteps, from ours.

    The TAM Rubberstamp Archive will be 40 years old in 2023. Time to create a new rubberstamp to celebrate that. Designs and/or actual prints of special designs are welcome. A special small piece of paper will be printed and distributed for this project. Since a lot goes digital these days, all digital designs are welcome. Documentation will be done in a digital way. The final results that actually make it to a real rubberstamp will be used on the outgoing mail-art. If you are the designer, you can make your own rubberstamp as well and support this celebration.

    do consider what [e]mailart is and could be. consider what's the difference between merely sending a simple attachment or image as an email body or otherwise sending a real piece of art that uses all the capacity of what embodies the digital world and the ancient email technology and protocols.

    can a mere attachment be considered a work of art? or should we explore something that resides in the body of the email and is changeable and unique and unable to subsist in any other medium than that?

    alternatively, you may also submit some words, your point of view on the matter, or even an essay regarding the "digital world vs mailart vs [e]mailart vs art".

    any questions regarding the open call should not be sent to us by email as they won't be replied to.
