Four Brazilian Artists. Four UK Artists. Three fax machines. One exhibition called "Fax Ex-Machina."
Earlier this month, the KK Outlet
in the UK and POP Gallery in São Paulo simultaneously hosted a live art exchange between Brazilian and UK artists through the use of the fax machine. "High taxes and blindsided customs laws make it impractical to import and export art in and out of Brazil. Using the lo-fi means of fax machines we aim to avoid these extortionate charges and showcase young talent in and outside of Brazil."
The participating artists included the likes of Ramon Martins
, Eduardo Recife
, Elisa Sassi
, Carlos Dias, Andrew Clark
, Billie Jean
and Jimmy Turrell
Great concept. Great art. Simply great all around. Take a look at some of the photos
from this extra cool event.
