Meet at the southwest corner of Expo Blvd and Abbott St
Join Howard Ursuliak and Kyle Juron, along with Other Sights members Barbara Cole, Lorna Brown, Marko Simcic, and Colin Griffiths for an on-site tour and reception. The four billboards face east and west on Expo Boulevard between Carrall and Abbott Streets in Northeast False Creek. Placed back into False Creek, FLOOD (Displaced Horizon) triggers and disturbs our recognition of the familiar surroundings and iconic details of urban Vancouver. When a horizon goes missing, the future is obscured—this billboard series has tucked the horizon out of sight. Without language or text, un-slick, and hyper-located, the artwork situates us in our present moment, perhaps bottoming out, perhaps run aground.
