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 119 are available for sale for $20 US (including international p&p) email for further details.

The Journal Of Field Study International

One of the joys of laying out pages for the Field Report is discovering serendipity at work – this edition features works with holes and circles, gaps in the field, and the ephemera of leaves, note books and feathers. Tangible ephemera has become rarer when more work now occurs on blogs and facebook pages. The Field Report returns mailart to its roots.

The 50th anniversary of the events of May 1968 are referenced by Martin Desloovere work and Terry Reid with his Situationist reading of Denis Mizzi on a walk through the city. Also included in the report are works of a hermetic nature, from gnome crime scenes, to sigils, and recordings of the movement of birds and the labour of bees. The cataloguing of objects is also a feature, with Peter Müller’s Beauty of Poo, Sue Hartigan’s Geelong Ruins Series#1, Incidental Rothkos by Glen Smith and Angela Stadthaus’s classifications of a type of paper.

This edition of the Field Report welcomes KLIRZ with his heroic micro opera and Sarah Bodman and Jayne Marshall with their readings from Encounters with Books/Encuentro con Libros from Santander. Books Beyond Boundaries in Geelong included an illustrated talk on assembling publications and a display from the Field Study archive while Jürgen O Olbrich re-enacted the Fluxshop for Objekt-Magazine in Münich.

2019 will see the 25th issue of The Journal Of Field Study International and welcomes emanations from artists around the globe.
