Description

In the work, HUANG Yan engraved several "trashes" he claimed in the city of Changchun in 1994 on the back of airline company envelops; the envelops were then disseminated to other regions of China with its national posting service. This work is a paragon of HUANG Yan's "posting art" -- art that is shipped with national posting service. To engage artworks with Chinese posting service, HUANG Yan surveys the uniformity and regulation of the national posting office, along with other extendingly implied social systems (HUANG, Artwork Introduction: Chinese Traditional Medicine, available on ZHOU Document) (Jerry Wu'23).
