Immy Mali – #05
66 Letters (Part Four)C& in Conversation with Immy Mali – read the interview here.
It all started with some letters.
The artist Immy Mali wrote them as part of a project she has been working on for the last couple of years. Sixty-six letters to her younger self between the ages of approximately five (or fewer) and twelve years of age. A journey that started as images of events from childhood began to manifest in her work.
“This collation of letters is only the first part of my ongoing project Letters to my Childhood, which I will continue to develop as the years go by. I have always been interested in ways of showing work that are not limited to gallery spaces or indeed to any physical space. The exhibition presents the letters as well as animations, images of installations, and sketches that I consider to be responses from Marcue, my childhood self. I find it important to exhibit the letters as they capture thoughts, memories, and viewpoints in a form that is not heavily adulterated by in-depth research into the topics that arise as the writing unfolds.”
The multilayered experience of Letters to my Childhood is presented here in six chapters in the frame of C& Commissions.
For C& Commissions, artists exclusively present digital works or exhibitions to be experienced on C& for the first time.
