Field Report 2019- Journal Of Field study International is published!














The Journal Of Field Study International

The Field Report has reached the symbolic milestone of 25 years of publication and remains a tangible artefact of the mailart network. Initially conceived as a magazine of possibilities and a directory of Networkers, the first call out was for work that went beyond the boundaries of the gallery. The first edition took the form of a box of broadsheets featuring pieces by the mailart Network and records of Field Study emanations and manifestations, but by the second edition had taken its current form as an assembling publication.

Housed behind the imagery of the hermetic beehive (a masonic symbol of industry), 2019’s emanations take multiple forms, from artiststamps, through to collage, text based work, documentation of performances, events and a taxonomy of art gallery toilets. Fortieth anniversaries are also celebrated, in particular by Artpool and FEMAILIST Carol Stetser. 2019 also saw the Field Study meeting at Tate Britain which is documented here. The meeting featured artists from across Europe performing work and exchanging ephemera.

Other works in this report reference the beehive as concept particularly Julian Beere’s Fagure de miere. Other emanations explore ESP and parapsychology – these include Retail Cargo Cult’s The Rhine Experiment [Replicated], Lucy Godycki’s Kirlian Photography, Dr Anna Banana’s modification of organic forms through psychic interventions and Sarah Bodman’s remote viewing automatic drawing experiment.

Wipe
Wipe is a small assembling publication in which toilet paper is the medium. The use of a nonarchival, indeed anti-archival medium, is intentional, with the ephemerality and fragility of the medium insharp contrast with the artistic concern for archival materials. Conceived as a playful lightweight publication to circumvent postage costs, Wipe nods to Duchamp’s urinal and challenges contributors to make work on a medium that is almost anti-art.
Contributors source their own toilet paper, a source of fascination in itself and a comment on the hygiene practices of different societies. In spite of its intended ephemerality, toilet paper allows rubberstamping, stitching, collaging, and even frottaging. When 20 contributions are received, Wipe is distributed to participants by mail.(text by Susan Hartigan)
Limited copies of WIPE 126 are available for $20 US (including international p&p) email for further details.
