“Grief Letter” is an ongoing community-based project where people can share their personal experience of loss and grief in a form of a letter. Each letter will be included in the art installation, helping to promote grief support.

This concept grew out of artist’s own experience of loss, coping with grief and finding light ahead. The process of writing has long been proven to have healing properties. Writing down and materialising thoughts helps release tension, organise mental chaos and decipher traumatic triggers.

Writing the letter addressed to the deceased is a powerful way of diving into subconscious, processing memories, closing some chapters, asking for forgiveness or advice, express anger or regrets or just put your thoughts down without overthinking.

Launch of the Grief Letter project during Vanishing Point, solo exhibition by Natalia Millman in October 2021 at the Crypt Gallery, London.
