We regret to inform you...
By: Wezile Mgibe
On the 23rd March 2020, a national lockdown was announced starting on the 27th March 2020 to prevent spreading of the disease COVID-19. Since the day of announcement, we all forced to shift and reschedule our daily plans. On that note, majority of people had to write letter to their employees and families and other received some of those laters that accompanied with rather sad news of losing a job, death of a loved one, cancellation of trips, postponed events and most importantly the “We regret to inform you” Letter from the place you were hoping it will change your life in any way. The effects that came with such news made the rest of the country fatigue and restless, we all had to undergo a process of remembering, emotional journey and making sense of the reality. The work is made up of an large scale envelope with the letters of colleagues, friends and people I have met along the way, whom they were willing to share their trauma with me. The envelope is made up of mutton cloth.
