Photography by ©RACHEL ROM FOR HG ISSUE ( NEW YORK CITY) 

After writing his own short texts, in French, Anthony Bannwart produced stamps as artworks creating other artworks. 

It truly is POIETIC art as Anthony Bannwart's previous projects and this new one would refer to. 

POIETIC or the art of the process. An artwork creating another artwork. 

Following the creation of this first artworks, the texts are being stamped on human skins, models, bodies commissioned by the artist or the commissioned photographers and archived by them. 30 texts on stamps are so far available on request via Anthony Bannwart, either sent or produced on location.  

Various photographers (mainly professionals, artists and amateurs as well) will archive the project on their chosen models and body parts (including the artist’s also participating with a range of photographs made with various cameras) with Anthony Bannwart's own personal and original texts stamped on it.

One can use any formats of photographs, using all types of cameras (Hasselblad to Iphone or Polaroid), styles is up to the photographer, the text being the subject. The collection is open to various quality of images. 

Text varies, translation and choice of stamp available too. Some are poïetic and poetic (not to confuse) texts always of his own, and own words of thought, observation. 
Social media is a big part of the project too, via INSTAGRAM in particular, he will share this poietic art project with the world as Anthony Bannwart found many of his answers to promote his project in the conversation with Hans Ulrich OBRIST, Simon de PURY, Kevin SYSTROM (Instagram founder and CEO), and Klaus BIESENBACH at SALON ART BASEL MIAMI this year. 

The official launch of the project and the inauguration of the project's dedicated page is imminent and will take place in a prestigious location honoring photography.

The ambition is to question the ephemerality of tatooed texts on skin by archiving and collecting as a community of images with a common denominator, short stamped texts.  

In this original new project, Anthony Bannwart also stretch the fact that the stamps perceived as artworks are creating other artworks through a performative act first (stamping someone with a text) then creating another artwork through the camera-eye of commissioned and collaborating photographers, the bodies becoming a surface for words.

At the exhibition the public will be able to stamp a text on themselves as a take-away artwork. 
All photographs may be on sale. An published edition will also be part of the project after the first exhibitions.

PARTICIPATIONS SO FAR ARE VARYING FROM PARIS, MIAMI, NEW-YORK, WARSAW, BARCELONA, AND SWISS CITIES.
