The ten Spanish snails (aka Manuel, Federico, Enrica, Alfonso, Madalena, Javier, Esmeralda, Pablo, Frida & Catalina) that were exhibited at ARCO Madrid have now made all their deliveries so we have removed them from the Real Snail Mail profile page. In total the ten snails made 78 email deliveries during the contemporary art fair from 17th-21st February 2010. They also received some media attention on Spanish TV check out this feature after 8.59mins.
We are grateful to Bages Cargol who delivered these Spanish snails safely from Barcelona to our hotel in Madrid. Also, thanks to the Osuna Madrid Hotel reception staff who looked after them before we arrived and kept them in hibernation in their fridge. A big thank you to [DAM]Berlin for enabling this exibition to happen within the Expanding Box section. It was a good opportunity to show Real Snail Mail within this context and the art fair was a great inspiration to us.
