Twenty-eight showings of Gardens Speak across five continents produced an archive of audience letters written as part of the performance. These handwritten letters, artifacts of each performance, provide insight into the varied audience experiences of Gardens Speak, including their reflections on politics, empathy, loss, and death. “Tell me what I can do” is a sentence written in a number of audience letters, asking the martyrs of Gardens Speak for guidance. In this installation, the artist asks visitors what to do with the accumulated material—evidence of our encounter and our shared responsibility.
