Argento e oro is metallurgy, alchemy, joining fragments together. Argento e oro, Italian for silver and gold, features words in a new order and with a strange rhythm. Nevertheless, Argento e oro feels right. For ‘Argento e oro’, How To Show Up? has invited Holly Childs, Teddy Coste, and Rosie Haward to share published work, new work, and work in progress.
