Out of Office Reply Residency

Vanessa Kwan has created a two part installation at the Or Gallery. A book of postcards and a sculptural installation shown in the anteroom of the gallery.The postcards show images of some of the world’s most recognizable cityscapes—among them New York, Tokyo, London, and Toronto—with predetermined shapes cut out of the card. To experience the work, participants must follow the instructions on the back of the card to a specific spot in Vancouver (i.e.: the railing on the south side of Science World), and hold the postcard at a specified angle, at a specified time of day. By looking through the hole of the image, buildings experienced first hand in Vancouver will be integrated, however briefly, into a postcard view of New York (for example).
