Description

“For as long as I can remember, I have depended on the U.S. Postal Service to bring new information and ideas into my world, and to help me share things with others.”

In 2010, Marc Fischer experienced postal trauma when he moved away from his beloved Nancy B. Jefferson Post Office on the Near West Side and became a customer of the Roberto Clemente Post Office in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, which was just three blocks from his apartment. “Rather than forfeit the ability to mail things close to home, I did what any normal person with access to social media would do: I kept going back there and then complained about it on the internet.” Gathered together for the first time, Deliverance presents all of Fischer’s Facebook post office—related posts since 2011. Part archive and part therapeutic exercise, this collection documents Fischer’s committed but fraught bond with Chicago’s post offices.

MARC FISCHER is a Chicago-based artist. Since 1998, Fischer has been a member of the group Temporary Services, which makes and distributes publications as part of its art practice. Temporary Services started Half Letter Press, a publishing imprint and web store, in 2008. In 2007, Fischer founded the initiative Public Collectors.
