Save Event: 'Three by Three' - by L.A.Simmons

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


‘This collection of postcards is an attempt to communicate and log some of the installation art and social sculptures I have made over the last 17 years. These have often consisted of ephemeral paintings and performances in the landscape, documented photographically.


How do you archive a practice that paints on living canvases and constructs usually fleeting lived experiences? Who owns the work? The photographer, land owner, the painters?

Varied communities have contributed to the paintings, from Surrey firemen to Ibizan goats, with passers by, friends and family. Which element is the artwork - the documentation, event, concept?’ Lee Simmons

The collection of images will be launched on three occasions. The first will take place at Westminster Reference Library with one copy being added to the library archive system and another sold to the exhibition guests, who will be able to purchase one postcard for £1. The artwork is authenticated using a DNA tag, which logs the exchange.

Further launches will be held on mountains and cliffs during the library closure. Information will be added here: www.lee-simmons.com/birthdayprojects
