Camberwell Correspondence

Led by Noble and King

Meeting (and greeting) at Card Corner, SE5, artist and writer collaboration Noble & King begin a two-hour participatory walking tour of Camberwell with antique postcards and letters. Filing through the local streets and greens, examining hand-pressed papers, reading inky lines, taking note of faded road signs and studying spent stamps, a dialogue between voices past and present emerges. Camberwell Correspondence enlists homely historical ephemera, creative speculation and personal memories to enliven details in the urban space. ‘Correspondence’ works as a collective noun to mean the exchange of missives (letters, postcards, etc), our attention to ‘correspondences’ while exploring and the co-responding that (hopefully) takes place between walk participants.
