(British-Colombia, Canada )
Four artists imagine the world divided into nice, neat parcels. Monique Genton’s magnificent installation of colourful grassy squares reminds us of tidy lawns – the land-owner’s disciplining of nature. Toni Hakenscheid takes us into the mind of the child who possesses the world through a train set or a picture postcard – except these pictures are all from the real world! Martin Parr takes us around the globe looking for the perfect parking space. In an elaborate parody of corporate development, Mike Yuhasz encourages us to buy up all the land and resources of the Canadian North.
