The Crown Letter is an online participatory art project created during the lockdown. It is a worldwilde open platform for the free expression of women artists, a cartography of the intimate over time and space, offering a meeting place for a community of subjectivities. The Crown Letter is released every Tuesday since 21st April 2020.
This week’s postcards come from Oxford, London, Berlin and Moscow. I’ve allowed myself two postcards from the top floor flat on Malaya Bronnaya street in Moscow, where my friend Masha has lived for nearly forty years. One was an Easter card showing the kitchen table and the other is the view from her balcony. I have described both places repeatedly for the Crown Letter over the past year: this February, last September, and for the first time exactly a year ago, in my second letter from Glasgow, May 12-19th 2020. So it feels right to have them revealed in pictures here this week. Lines about laughter, prayer and remembering the dead.
