Drawing a great invented herbarium, a hymn to the imagination that plays with nature.A project inspired by the botanical herbarium volumes of the past to create one made up of new figures architectures and imaginary taxonomies.
In September 2019 I started the “Fantastic Herbarium” project, the Fantastic Herbarium.
I tried to create an archive by calling for a contribution of images and ideas from mail artists or not.
All the material had to arrive by post in free format (maximum A4 format).
More than 100 mail artists and others from 26 different countries responded.
The idea then was, based on the material, to make it a publication and possibly a public exhibition.
This phase of the project has ended, even in the midst of the known problems due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
So my goal is to bring an open and shared project to life. I am just a medium.
