|Gary Farrelly, Dispatch 2014010 (2014) [address side shown], mixed media on card, 40cm x 23cm.|
My 5th North Korean mail art dispatch left Brussels this morning. The object is entitled Dispatch 2014010 and it departed Belgium in the standard international mail. I looked long and hard to find an appropriate civic institution in the DPRK to receive these objects. Ultimately I would like some sort of reciprocal initiative to be taken at the other when they take delivery of my correspondence. In this way the project can be evolved into a fruitful international collaboration. Some research led me to believe that the target for my unilateral diplomatic effort should be Pyongyang University of Science and Technology. I started expediting works to that location on a monthly basis this past february. At his time there is no news of the whereabouts of the objects. The undertaking is part of my 5th 2 Year Development Plan (2014-2016).
