MY DARLING JOHNNY
2014

G-Shock East, London

‘My Darling Johnny’ is how Costi’s mother would address him in letters sent during his prison sentence. Including a live reading by his mother Bridget, the show existed as a map of artefacts relating to his time incarcerated.

 

Costi often visits traumatic events as a way of gaining power and re-appropriating negative memories with positive.
