postcards from before

The artist Lil Boyce began a project in Melbourne in 2003. It started as a series of conversations with people about the places they’d lived in. She wasn’t sure how to work with or use the conversations, but eventually started making hand-made postcards in 2012. Last week, seventeen years after the first conversation, Lil posted the last of the sets of postcards. I think they speak beautifully about memory, place, listening and time.
