INKIII: Send Limited Edition Art Free of Charge

eTradeWire News/10645542
TORONTO - eTradeWire -- INKIII launched its inaugural limited edition print series on September 18 2021.

The newly launched INKIII website allows anyone around the world to customize and send a postcard featuring an emerging contemporary artist, free of charge, to anyone of their choosing. Each featured work will be reproduced by INKIII in Italy as a limited-edition print, and the back will include a brief artist's statement as well as the sender's message for the recipient.

"For Inkiii, I wanted to go back to the origins of postcards... I wanted to create a whole new landscape, bodies and earth intertwined on the same level," explains inaugural INKIII artist Janna Yotte.

The INKIII project draws upon the legacies of mail art, but in the age of the Internet. Mail art originally enabled artists to produce and send works of art outside of a conventional gallery setting. Artists drew on existing images, collaged photographs together, included stamps as a part of compositions, and saw the mailing process as an integral part of the work. INKIII similarly aims to harness the communicative potential of physical mail to disseminate art. The project blends the new opportunities of the digital while recognizing the value of physically experiencing works of art.

INKIII's first featured artist Janna Yotte (https://www.jannayotte.com/) specializes in collage, placing botanical books, obsolete medical publications and trendy fashion magazines under her scalpel. Originally a photographer and graphic designer, Janna began practicing collage in 2017 and has since exhibited in North America and Europe. Cutting into publications of all kinds, she has assembled hundreds of works, which have quickly garnered international attention.

Janna writes of her involvement in this project, "I've experimented a little with mail art before as I find it so cool in its accessibility… Postcards are exciting in themselves, but add curated art, the ease of the digital process, and it's free!? That's all very exciting to me. I am so curious to see what meaning it will take for strangers." In her collage for INKIII, Janna investigates the relationship between body and land in a piece that speaks to both connection and fragility.
