Franticham gave 2 mailart workshops in the Sujak studio.
Mailart is not so much known in Korea..
The interest and curiosity among the participants of the workshops was great.
We talked about the history of mailart and showed examples of mailart, assembly zines, mailart catalogues, artistamps, artist trading cards...

portable lollipop in Seoul

내가 아끼는 나의 동네에
쌍큼한 가게 하나
그림도 그리고 옷, 가방, 장난감,노트,
정겨운 것들도 팔고
기타치고 노래도 부르는
포터블 롤리팝
이번 달 그들이 만드는 잡지 주제는
'내가 만들고 싶은 가게'
나와 프란시스도 작은 그림 그려서
동네 디비디 가게 가는 길에 들러
풀로 꾹 붙여주고 사진도 찍고
그렇게 발렌타인 데이는 안녕..

Our drawing contribution to the zine of this nice shop "portable lollipop"
in Gaepo Dong, Seoul.

new series of photographs



I was always interested in the old tractors still in use by small farmers here in the West of Ireland.. you still see them driving at 5 km/hr on the streets with bales of hay or sheep, gathering turf on the bog or getting supplies at the hardware shop.
It's poet Sean Lysaght from Westport who gave me the idea of photographing them all in Achill, because they are particularly common still here, and eventually one day make a book from it.
