Gardens Speak has had 30 showings across 5 continents, and many of them have included a special request, with El Khoury asking her audiences to write letters. Here, she offers a selection of them to be uncovered and read. “Tell me what I can do” is a sentence that recurs throughout the handwritten texts, and those six small words reflect so much: empathy and caring, but also anguish, confusion, even desperation.
