Work Description

For one year- beginning in April 2020 - artists Rahel Zoller and Louis Porter undertook a mail art project entitled, Works on Paper. The rules of this project were never precisely established, although each of the works examines in some way society's relationship with paper. Amongst a variety of other items the project contains price tags, toilet paper, jigsaw puzzles, envelopes, newspaper, scratch cards, books, calling cards, paper bags, a will, napkins, raffle tickets, calendars, sandpaper, receipts, letters, a parking fine, carbon paper, postcards, hotel notepaper, photographs, edible rice paper, certificates, a clock face, puzzles, blotting paper, glassine, photocopies, security paper, a census, cardboard, graph paper, banknotes, a fortune teller's calling card and an oversized novelty cheque. This limited-edition artists' box containing 19 facsimiles and re-workings of several items in the project as well as a catalogue and a poster was produced in an edition of 50 copies.
