Description

Tales from a Green Post Box

The RHA is delighted to present a number of performative lectures by artist Jane Locke as part of her participation in Futures, Series 3, Episode 1, that runs at the RHA from March 17th to April 23rd.

The Irish postal system is sufficiently entwined with our society that we leave a hole in our front doors for their workers. So what does it say about us as a nation that our post boxes still bear royal emblems?

In an entertaining talk, artist Jane Locke wonders at the inner workings of the postal service – and describes how in her attempts to infiltrate the system she happened across a series of unexpected and interconnected tales; tales that will ensure that you won’t look at post boxes the same way again.
