POSTED is an exhibition in a pack of postcards, featuring art made by UCL students in response to the theme of connection. Spanning photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, performance and collage, the 15 images explore ways of finding a place in the world in a context of enforced isolation, or reflect on the impossibility of doing so.
Postcards are themselves a means of creating connection, linking sender and recipient through the physical passage of pictures and handwritten words through time and space. We still send postcards because they transport meanings and feelings in a way that instant messages or emails often can’t.
We hope that these postcards might likewise cross borders and, in a small way, reconnect us as we emerge from the pandemic.
