A MAIL ART PROJECT BY STALKE OUT OF SPACE AND SAM JEDIG (FOUNDED IN 2007)
Artstamp.dk was established in 2007, as an alternative art project in relation to more traditional works of art. With Artstamp.dk I wish to both challenge the classical stamp and the frames for the concept of art.
The art stamps are produced in small editions, typically between 50 -3000 stamps and are independent ”miniature works of art”. On the day of publishing, when the art stamps are publicly accessible, they will also exist as ”first day cover” in small editions.
Artstamp.dk is not just about publishing stamps, but also about the function of the stamp. A part of the project is therefore an enquiry about what happens when letters/ mail art with art stamps are sent all over the world, crossing national frontiers. Will philatelists accept them? Will the art world take an interest? Will a third kind of collector, finding this concept interesting, arise? Artstamp.dk questions the reality, we are all part of and take for granted.
