ARTIST includE:

Andrea Blank, Isha Bøhling, Claire Brewster, James Brooks, Oliver Clegg, Sam Hodge, Tom Hunter, Izzy McEvoy & Jessica Piddock, Duncan MacAskill, Laura Malacart, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Lucy Parker, Julia Riddiough, Carole Romaya, Kim Rugg, Haim Sokol, Inca Starzinsky, The Girls, Rachel Whiteread and Miyo Yoshida.

This exhibition strives to remind us of the power of these tangible messages – how they can shape and change our lives.  Russian artist, Haim Sokol, presents a melancholy bundle of unopened letters quietly examining our impatient society; Tim Noble and Sue Webster compare letters from their mothers as an alternative and enlightening self portrait and Rachel Whiteread, using paint and piercing on postcards, elegantly alters historical Hackney scenes.
