Artstamp.dk was established in 2007, as an alternative art project in relation to more traditional works of art. With Artstamp.dk I wish to challenge the classical stamps and the frames for the concept of art.
The Artstamps are produced in small editions and are independent ”miniature works of art”. On the day of publishing, when the Artstamps are publicly accessible, they are also publiced as ”first day cover” in small editions.
Artstamp.dk is not only about publishing stamps, it's also about the widely spread stamps which can carry ideas and thoughts from person to person. A part of the project is therefore what happens when letters with Artstamps are sent all over the world, crossing national borders. Will the art world take an interest? Will a new kind of collector find this concept interesting?
Communication is not a matter of taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated technology, but to express something about the world we live in , which could encourage an expanded discussion.
The essence of this exploration is that art exceeds institutional provision and connects directly to the emotional and social energies in the life people live on many levels, also when we are not in museums and galleries.
