Letters of Last Resort

From June 30, 2018 to July 8, 2018
Performance evening July 8, 2018

Letters of Last resort is a compendium of responses from artists and writers regarding what has been described variously as the apocalypse; end of days; revelations; eschaton or simply the end of the world. This project utilises and in some cases subverts the linguistic terminology and doctrines associated with modern day notions of apocalypse. In so doing, this endeavor represents the construction of a positive generative organism from concepts that are inherently predicated upon the destruction.  

The title of this project is a direct reference to letters located within the four British nuclear submarines carrying nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles that constitute the Trident defence programme. Letters of Last Resort  The publication is a publication produced in an edition of 300, it is an exhibition and it is a series of performances.
