You can’t tie an email up with a ribbon. But a handwritten letter, well, that may be a dying art form. Do we express ourselves differently in a handwritten format? Is it possible to send a meaningful love letter via the internet? Are we losing a critical part of our cultural history when we no longer put pen to paper?
“Part art installation, part performance residency and part travelling archive,” Voices at Hand is Wendy Trusler’s ongoing performance project exploring the significance of and ways in which we categorize the handwritten letter.
Wendy will be in residence exhibiting and reading from her extensive collection of found letters at Trent University. Poignant, comical or mysterious, you can experience Voices at Hand February 1 – 8 , 2012. You can even bring your own letters to contribute to her project.
February 1: Thomas J. Bata Library 10am-3pm
February 2 – 8: Peter Gzowski College 10am-3pm
Reception & Artist Talk: February 3, 7pm
