FROM KOLAJ #24
Cut & Post Postcard Project
Edinburgh Collage Collective and collagist Mark Murphy (moif_collage) worked together to make a limited edition set of collage postcards. They wrote, “We are looking for analogue collages based on the good old-fashioned picture postcard. We will select twenty-four of these for a small limited edition set of postcards of our own. These will be printed on top quality archival paper and tastefully packaged.” Throughout the project, they featured a wide range of submitted works on social media and showcased as many postcard collages as possible, demonstrating the diverse visual responses and interpretations. The collages chosen for the project were selected with help from Australian collagist, and Brooklyn Collage Collective founding member, Kieran Madden and Scottish collagist Leeleelaluna. The “Cut & Post” project joins a list of strategies collage artists are using to curate and disperse collage outside of the gallery exhibition format. One hundred sets of postcards were made. Each of the twenty-four artists received a set and the remaining seventy-six sets are on sale via www.edinburghcollagecollective.com and
