Montréal À Parrsboro… MAP … a Mail Art Project

MAP_promo_1_2_72dpiLoren Williams is a Montreal based, visual artist who often creates work for the specific site where it will be exhibited. Main & Station’s past life as a post office is the inspiration for her current project MAP, on exhibition at Main & Station from July 28th to August 16th.

MAP

Williams created 20 small scale artworks and sent them by post from Montreal to Parrsboro. MAP is a mail art project that connects these two places. Two points on a map separated by vast amounts of water and dense forest. The works are about measuring distance and finding one’s way from A to B.

The works propose various, some dubious, modes of transportation and should not be considered as reliable navigational aids for traveling from Montreal to Parrsboro.
