Open Call - Participate in ‘What is a space of a line’? Answers on a postcard exhibition


Sometimes you can say more by saying less. Artists often suggest that an intentional reduction of visual information actually increases a work of art’s impact, one such reduction is dimension. Answers on a postcard is an open call for you to engage imaginatively with the question and within the confines of a postcard’s limited space.

The project looks to connect two well-known idioms ‘Drop me a line’, which suggests an informal invitation for an informal note that should not require much effort, and ‘answers on a postcard’ which implies a brief answer or opinion. Allied with the supposition that a line is a mark that spans its distance between two points taking any form along its way, answers on a postcard asks: what is a space of a line?
