Small Print International 6

Delighted to be part of Small Print International 6

28 November 2020 - 13 February 2021
Artists were invited to create work inspired by the first Aerogramme in 1933.
Photo Etching made at the University of Northampton

In response to the first Aerogramme this photo etching combines text, a honing pigeon and an aerogramme stamp.

The text, sending love from me to you, is a reflection and response to the Brexit vote and the unease within the UK with the undercurrent of anti-European, anti-Irish, and anti ‘other’ sentiment. The text is a hand of friendship, warmth and the human need for others.

The choice of stamp is reference to the aerogramme and how this airletter made the world a smaller place.

The honing pigeon is a reference to how people have needed to send messages and communicate with others for centuries.
