Poste Restante (study for outdoor installation)

Installation (photo Nadezhda Serebryakova)
dimensions variable, 2010

This work consists of 12 sculptures of city mailboxes from different countries modeled in real size. “Mailboxes covered solid concrete are assembled as if they were towers in a city-scape or tombstones in a cemetery. The two become the same thing. The city is a dead place. Mail cannot be posted - communication cannot occur.  (David Thorp)
