What would you say?

lonely heARTs is an art project devised by Davina Drummond and Daniel Lehan, two artists based in South London. Davina and Daniel placed an invitation in the personal columns of local newspapers, asking readers of the paper to send them messages that describe their perfect romantic partner. These desires have then been transformed by the artists into tangible items, which at the end of the evening will then be returned to the lonely heARTs contributors.
Davina’s recent shows include Flex Your Textiles at John Connelly Presents New York, Living in a Material World, Art Textiles 3 British Arts Council London, and Girls on Film Manchester.
Daniel’s most current work has been included in The Stars Down to Earth, The Nunnery Gallery, Sideshow Nottingham, and Jumble It Up, Oxford.
Both artists met through collaborating in I & ME, a project that aimed to bridge the boundaries between arts education and curatorial practice held at Studio Voltaire summer 2006.
