Opening Friday, January 15, 7pm
In this exhibition, Graeme Wahn utilizes the history and future of Hastings Park in Vancouver, and examine the results of idealized community planning, collective utopias and the redundance of photographic depiction. Through image-based and sculptural means, the works highlight the production of subsidiary, unintended meanings that occur via systems and objects designed for memorialization. The physical contents and conceptual contingencies of Hastings Park provide a framework within which Wahn establishes an idiosyncratic or esoteric relationship to notions of place, and the common ways in which knowledge is crafted and packaged in order to transcend time.
