“Mail Bag” (2005) Krems, Austria

“Mail bag” is a photograph, is a document of an action in a public space. At the moment of the event, the artist interchange mail bags between inhabit buildings.

For Samuel Cepeda’s explicit interest in new media, there is a constant interest in anachronistic objects: calligraphy, the train or the boat, mail; the printed mail continues being the trace that anticipates an absent body, with a curious presence, unquestionable, evanescent, like the sign that doesn’t let you distinguish between reality and fiction.
