'For you …' Susan Brind and Jim Harold Woodside Library, Glasgow As part of ‘Bitter Rose’, Glasgow International, 2016 including talk and performative readings Over a number of years, artists Susan Brind and Jim Harold have been collaborating on an artwork that takes the form of a growing series of letters, with the working title Coffee Letters, that reference events witnessed since the turn of the 20th-21st Century. The letters, based on the artists’ own experiences and observations, are written by an anonymous ‘I’ – from different years and various international locations – to an unknown ‘you’ – whose location is not known. The letters reveal a relationship, by means of reflecting upon historical and current events, and moments shared, that reaches across continents, cultures and time. For you … was developed as a sculptural installation and a reading for the ‘Bitter Rose’ project that took place at different locations in Glasgow (8 April - 2 May 2016) devised for Glasgow International 2016, by writer, poet and musician Tawona Sithole and artist Birthe Jorgensen. Sithole & Jorgensen invited selected artists to devise a work for chosen locations distributed across the City of Glasgow so as to interact with the different communities located within and dispersed across the city.
