One of the 24 hour "Mini-Many" Residencies at Koh-i-noor Copenhagen, Denmark January 9-14, 2012
A Texas Twitter began in a thrift store, if the start of anything these days is determinable. Blue is how I picture Copenhagen. I’ve never been there, but, I found this porcelain plate when looking for a blue memento at a gritty little grill in Texas known for its breakfast fare. My Mini-Many Residency lasted one and a half hours in Denmark. I didn't go, I sent a bird.
I purchased the blue plate with a bird on it and re-fired it in an electric kiln, adding the black letter decals.
I took it to the post-office and labeled it not fragile to save on the cost. I packed it in blue cord and cardboard. Had it arrived in pieces, Koh-i-noor would have had to decide what to do with my entry.
Thank, Sarita Hunn, receiver of my entry and one of the two co-organizers of the Many Mini. It now belongs to her. _____________________________________ "Koh-i-noor is an independent project space and non-profit organization run by a group of artists based in Copenhagen and "upholds a collaborative, process-related, informal platform for open thought, information exchange, spatial experiments, interdisciplinary approach and to maintain a reflection on contemporary art.
