Tales from a Green Post Box
September 09 - November 07 2016
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.
