Letters to Monique

Letters sent to women sharing the same name, found in the public phone book. Every woman received the same ambiguous letter, looking for a grandmother. The responses were diverse: from the wrong address notice to the condoleances letter, from the brief memo to detailed confidence. An attempt to reconcile with absence, this project looks for a way to materialize the creation of relations through imagination. Through the absurdity of connecting with a woman only because of a shared name, the experiment is a call for going past the limits of reality and find meaning for impossible dreams.
