Part 1 - Collection

" In this time of postal cut backs, I would like to provide an alternative postal service to deliver people's message cards for free. I will collect messages to deliver at the exhibition. Visitors will be encouraged to make message cards on site. Messages could be anything and to anyone who they want to communicate. They can send a message (as I will be a messenger) to businesses/galleries/other schools as well. For example, you can send a message card to a lady who works at a flower shop even you don't know her name but know the shop's name and can describe what she looks like.This service is available in Central & East London only. Each card will be stamped an 'Unexpected Delivery'. The guaranteed delivery date will be before 25 December 2009. "

On 5 December 2009 at Portman Gallery (London) I performed "Unexpected Messenger" (part 1) as a part of The Return of the Repressed which was the last event of The Dissolving Cube Exhibition.

I set up an alternative post office and provided blank cards and writing & drawing materials to encourage visitors to create & to post their own message cards.

The below are people who took part in this project.
