You are warmly invited to an exhibition of postcards. They're all real postcards that have been sent through the mail. But these are no ordinary postcards. They're all hand-drawn and each is the work of at least two people. How does that work? One artist starts a drawing - and without adding any verbal instructions or commentary - mails it to another. Another artist finds the card in her mailbox, completers it, and mails it back to the artist who began it. Surprise! Each postcard is thus a small work of art that neither of its artists could have predicted.
The Postcards between Friends exhibition includes collaborative postcards by the eighty or so Lingnan University students who participated in four drawing courses offered by the Visual Studies Department between 2012 and 2014, alongside those made by their teacher, Carol Archer, with five artist-friends: Anna Couani, Loene Furler, Kit Kelen, Virginia Shepherd and Sue Rawlinson.
