The Love Letter Project  ~  AñA Wojak

In the 21st century the art of letter writing is being usurped by the instant gratification and intrinsic anonymity of Twitter, text messaging & social media: email is the preferred method of written communication.  This project utilises these very media to encourage the art of hand written letter writing.

In August 2013 a call out was made for love letters,  sent to the address below, to become the inspiration of an artwork.

These remain anonymous, the important thing being that they be expressions of love, written by hand, and posted.

Love letters that were thought, but never sent… love letters to an unknown recipient… love letters to a  partner… love letters imagined… love letters to someone past or future… love letters that are languishing in a computer waiting for the touch of a pen…

AñA Wojak, the Very Terry Reid Award Artist in Residence cycled to the PO everyday over a two week period to collect the mail and used the material  received to create sincerely yours a performative interpretation of the letters, with sound by composer soprano, Eve Klein,

Originally presented on Sunday August 18 2013 at BigCi Bilpin, NSW Australia

The entire project is documented on this  blog, to form a virtual exhibition linked to the BigCi website.

Call out

Letters were to be hand written and posted in a stamped envelope to the address below.

BigCi

poste restante  Bilpin

NSW 2758   Australia

To be received by August 15 2013.

Letters can be in any language.

All names are reduced to initials, ensuring anonymity.

ln sending the letter you are consenting to its use in the artwork and on the blog documenting this project.

The Very Terry Reid Award was made possible due to the generosity and vision of the artist Terry Reid

and the additional support of Hadley Green Company.

    • It seems this project is getting a life of its own.
      Never too late for a love letter… All late mail will be forwarded on to me to get put up on the blog
      (it just won’t appear in the performance).
      It may just take a little longer for me to post, as I will be presenting the ‘sincerely yours,’ performance at ‘undisclosed territories7’ International Performance Art Meeting in Java, and traveling in Asia for a month.
      Thankyou for your interest & I look forward to your letter. Sincerely yours, AñA
