The letter
2005

Performance and mail-art project, text on paper 210 x 297 mm 

This project started with research on the mailing lists of the major art institutions in Portugal. Having overlapped them and distilled 
the 250 names of the persons who appear in all those mailling lists, the artist did a performance were he wrote 250 letters to these 
people asking the question: who are you? The letters were sent by post, anonymously, recreating an action described in the 
book of Jostein Gaarder - Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy, first published in 1991.
