Zara Sully, (on Island Island) Angel Exchange
Angel exchange asks artists to collaborate in an art “swap” taking place via the postal service. To participate, artists will send their address to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the post they will then receive an artwork, a cast angel, from artist Zara Sully. In return, Sully asks for you to please send an artwork back to them. These angels and recieved artworks will then be presented online on Bus Projects’ Island Island. This project aims to connect artists during a time in which physical intimacy is at an exceptional low, raising questions about how intimacy can be achieved without human interaction.
