The embroidered letter correspondence, carried on the 10-metre fabric, becomes both a physical and metaphorical attempt to escape idleness. As the needle and thread replace the keyboard, the artist is forced to renegotiate time and space; the laborious manual work confronts our – currently – stagnant world, an exercise on patience. Unsent Letters, seeks materiality within the digital, as corporeality becomes an active participant in the creative process. Locating the artwork within the Barbican Centre allows the assimilation of the physical world into the digital, the private into the public. The artist embroiders and actively waits for the inspiration to come.
