    Vanessa Kwan is a Vancouver-based artist and curator. As an artist, her work has involved the production of work in public space, and is concerned with the limits and potential of bringing art practices into venues of diverse cultural and social contexts. Recent projects include a large-scale permanent public artwork, a series of public events and collaborations on the subject of melancholy, and Everything Between Open and Closed, a study of signs. She is a founding member of the performance collective Norma, who were honoured with a City of Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for Public Art in 2011.

    About the work (from Vanessa): "I sent a package to all the Kwans in Vancouver (there’s 300 of them). In a letter written in both Chinese and English I asked each Kwan to consider the question 'Is there a place you’d like to go, but have never been?,' write their response on a postcard I included (postage paid) and send the postcard back to me. Of the 300, I received 51 responses, ranging from brief ('Africa') to poetic ('I have never been to Egypt where pyramids line the skyline and dust roams the pathways.')." Kwan then re-traced the hand-written responses to create her own drawings. Please check out our campaign page to see Vanessa's image!
