DEAR JOHN
YOU’VE GOT MAIL

5 OCTOBER – 12 NOVEMBER 2010

OPENING Tuesday 5 October 5.30pm

Dear John

I cannot talk

My hands are tired

Forgive me

Jennifer

‘Dear John’ letters take the form of a mouth made from a glove…’speak to the hand’.

The type of glove characterises male or female, recipient or receiver.

Today’s version of being dropped by email, text or twitter, the ‘Dear John’ letter is the coward’s way out. Do relationships mean so little they can be ‘twittered away’?
