Request for old or new handwritten letters for a public installation called the House of Letters by artist Miriam Mc Connon.
The installation will be exhibited in the Almyra Hotel Paphos, Cyprus in April 2017 and aims to travel to Ireland in 2017/2018
The ‘Ηouse of letters’ is an indoor installation that deals with the concept of immigration and displacement. The artist will create a classic house structure (measuring 3x3x3metres) using thousands of letters that she has collected from immigrants in countries all around the world. The installation allows us to contemplate the life of the immigrant. In recent times immigration has had such devastating consequences for many. In an attempt to counteract this, Miriam aims to express a sense of unification as opposed to separation as she brings thousands of immigrants stories together under one roof.
