Martin John Callanan Letters 2004-2006, 2007
Callanan's work explores apparatuses of power. Gathered here are the responses to his mass letter writing. Each letter poses a deceptively simple question or even inane rhetorical statement and the collected responses reveal the absurdity of bureaucracy and the egos of those that claim power.
Collected here are a selection of responses to a series of letters mailed between 2004-06, ranging from the bemused response of the Secretary to the Archbishop of Canterbury to the question "When will it end?" to appreciative letters from the offices of President Mubarak of Egypt in response to the declaration "I respect your authority".
