TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU at Toynbee Studios 5 - 6 October 2018
TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU: Love Letters to a (Post)Europe explores multiple, singular responses to a provocation as a mode of gathering and shared witness. The action, idea or form of a love letter is poetic and political guideline to a work that is otherwise brief and presented simply.
Responses were delivered on the Art Deco stage of Toynbee theatre off Commercial Street in London E1 almost exactly three years since the gathering in Athens. A handful of the artists who responded to the first provocation in Athens reframe or redevelop their works beside a series of new commissions near to a mural of the goddess Athena on the proscenium wall. The shift of context and political moment is not insignificant.
