LADY MADONNA
MAIL ART CALL 2018 on The Madonna
The woman with one thousand names
Each civilisation, country or religion honours its own female symbol of the matriarch. So will yours. In Christianity, the Madonna is Mary, also known as the Mother of Jesus, The Holy Virgin, Mediatrix, Stella Maris, etc. One thousand names, one thousand symbols, and thousands of works of art since the Middle Ages. From Giotto to contemporary celebrities, she has been indelibly present. And so it will always be.
In ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the magnificent Gothic cathedral, a statue of the Illustrious Lady has been cherished since the 14th century. The Illustrious Brotherhood of Our Blessed Lady preserves the legacy and celebrates its 700th anniversary in 2018. One of the most wellknown members of the confraternity is Jheronimus Bosch, the world famous painter.
On the occasion of this centenary, we want you to make a contemporary representation of the Mary figure, nowadays increasingly transformed into a strong, hieratic and empathic modern woman.
In the tower of the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center (image below), there is a five-storey-high art gallery that we want to fill with glorious, shining and splendid Madonna figures. Think of women in beautiful clothes in their colorific splendour, surrounded with flowers, crowned and provided with attributes, or plain and simple, adapted to your own style and (art) tradition.


An ode to the power woman, our modern Mary.

The Jheronimus Bosch Art Center,

Why did you decide to live in this place? (mail art project germany)






Hi

my name is Theresa and I study Editorial Design at Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein. Currently I work on a Projekt called PLACES EN RELATION. I have been thinking about this subject for a while as I have been living in a lot of different places within the last years. Sometimes I moved because of work or studies, or because I was curious about a certain city and sometimes because I was discontent with the apartment situation. I wondered how other people in other places think about that topic: If they wander around as much as I do or if they have settled in one place for a certain reason and if so: how did they decide for that one place and what ties them there?

For that reason I want to start a mail art project and I would be happy if a lot of people from different places would get involved! Send me a postcard of the town you are living in and on the backside write down your thoughts on: why you decided to live there? / What ties you there? / Does it feel like home? / Can you imagine living there forever? Please send your postcard to the following address before 15/12/2017: Theresa Peter / Ludwig-Wucherer-Str. 1 / 06108 Halle / Germany 

All postcards will be shown in a publication/exhibition at the end of the semester. If you want to receive further information on that, let me know by writing your address on the postcard. I am looking forward to receive a lot of cards and of course I would be happy if you spread this message to your friends, so that even more people can participate in the project! 

Thank you so much for participating!

Theresa
