Greetings from DEAL
2017, Deal, Artefact, Film, Ongoing, Performance, Photograph, Poem, Postcard

Greetings from DEAL started as a space of experimentation in 2010, ending in 2017; charting narratives in a seaside town undergoing urban change with creative people connected to the place. Through conversation, various public exhibitions, generosities and shared ambitions, works have been captured through a familiar postcard format. Near and far, long and short, fact and fiction: site-specific memories have been caught.
