The Missing Post Office UK by Saya Kubota




Is there someone to whom you wish you could tell your thoughts, even if you may never receive an answer? Missing Post Office (MPO) is a participatory project by the artist Saya Kubota; MPO receives and looks after letters that you want to write but don’t know where to send. A letter to and from anyone, anything, anywhere and at any time. This talk introduces its temporal UK branch that opened as part of the artist’s solo exhibition Material Witness at the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation. The evening includes a film screening and conversation between MPO UK Postmaster, Mr. Bryan Payne, and the artist.  We also would like to encourage you to write a letter to be a part of this art project. 

* The Missing Post Office UK can receive your letters from now until 22 February 2016. For those who wish to contribute, please read the instructions and FAQs on http://missing-post-office.com/missing-post-office-uk/ and send your messages on postcards to the address below:
