Edgardo Antonio Vigo, an Argentine artist, poet, conceptualist, and graphic designer, was best known for his participation in the international Mail art movement. In tandem with his Mail art works, which involve the participation of a recipient, he published magazines and editions that promoted an accessible, democratized art in place of the unique and valuable art object. A careful and self-aware archivist of his own work, Vigo composed his portfolio “Pocket Artworks” in 1995 to document five of his sculptural objects and installations.
