Andy Ash - Artist
'Making – Place' was an international postcard call for artists/educators to send custom- made postcards from around the world. An exhibition was held in parallel with the InSEA World Congress 2019 at the University of British Columbia from July to August 2019 in the Audian Centre.
In an era of connectivity and the rapid spread of social applications on our cellphones, as we continue to become more and more surrounded by virtual moments, comments, likes, and friendships, there is something extraordinary about opening our physical mailbox and receiving a tangible postcard, a personal note, or a hand-selected photograph; a piece of someone somewhere far away, in another part of the world. The theme of the exhibition is making - place. I contributed a postcard that addressed the theme of emplacement, being out of place, and being of the place.
