anne marie & julia rooney
We are sisters who have not lived in the same city for the past sixteen years. Both artists, we use the mail as a space of collaboration—not only between the two of us, but with every hand that touches what we send. It is one of our favorite practices of tenderness.
When Anne Marie moved to Baltimore in 2016, her mailing became a daily practice. As Julia collected each mailed item, she wrote Anne Marie an email as a form of digital receipt. After two years of sending objects and emailing responses, the artist turned the collaboration into a folio of risographs, each page made from scans and prints of their correspondence.
