Dear Mr. Keighery,
I am a MFA student in ceramics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I will be applying for a Fulbright Scholarship for the 2017-2018 year and plan to do a large scale work integrating texts of the war letters from World War One from the Australian War Memorial. Anthea Gunn, the curator of Art at the AWM suggested I contact you, as your work also deals with memory and narrative. I am looking for a ceramicist with whom I can work and consult on the development of my project. My perusal of your work suggested you would be an ideal choice.
I am sorry for contacting you in this manner, but my assiduous search did not turn up an e mail address. I would be happy to send a longer letter about the details of the project and how I intend to incorporate spoken text, linguistic analysis and ceramics in an effort to present the experience of the ordinary solder. My work to date is also concerned with the “footnotes of history.” those souls who do not make it into the history books.
I would be most grateful for a reply, and if this is not something that potentially interests you, if you could suggest other artists who might serve as mentors.
Thanking you in advance,
Very nice to hear from you David. My email is email@example.com and if you search Utube, there is a video called “The dead Man’s Penny”. Please feel free to email me. Best, Michael
