Mail in a bottle, 1999

Action 30.7. - 1.8.1999 in the framework of "Oreste" / Italian Pavilion, Spazio A, Venice Biennale.


"Mail in a bottle" is an attempt to establish, in consultation with experts, a ‘message in a bottle’ station for Venice. Expert opinions (from the Nuremberg Post Museum, a canal construction engineer, a Venetian postman, etc.) were solicited beforehand via an Internet forum and discussed.


The "Mail in a bottle" system is realized in accordance with their proposals. The system allows visitors to the Venice Biennale to send letters in specially designated bottles. In keeping with the natural setting of the city of Venice, the bottles, which are corked at the station, are entrusted to the waterways and the sea as carriers.
