Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: New Zealand Trashpo by Gerda Osteneck (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)

Gerda - 4.16.2017 - 1

Mail art by IUOMA member Gerda Osteneck (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)

April 17, 2017 - Gerda Osteneck is known in the Eternal Network as a Canadian trashpoet and devoted member of DKULTCAN (DKult-Canada). Her recent adventures in New Zealand are well-documented elsewhere. This journey gave her the opportunity to explore new dumpsters and litter-ature. Thus, the Karnival of Trash is able to exhibit for the first time (I think) Trashpo composed of indigenous New Zealand refuse. Gerda Osteneck’s aesthetic as well as sewing abilities make this a masterpiece.

As with the presentation of much Trashpo, it is possible I’ve presented the work upside-down (even though I’ve puzzled over the possibilities for some time). If so, here is a view of the main New Zealand section from another angle:

Deepest thanks to Gerda Osteneck!
