The Games Are Open

Folke Köb­ber­ling and Mar­tin Kaltwasser


In 2010, as Vancouver’s South East False Creek began its new life as Canada’s largest ‘green’ hous­ing devel­op­ment, the Berlin-based artist team of Folke Köb­ber­ling and Mar­tin Kalt­wasser used mate­ri­als recy­cled from the Olympic and Par­a­lympic Win­ter Games Ath­letes’ Vil­lage to cre­ate a sit­u­a­tion of exchange and coop­er­a­tion. Over a nine-week period, the artists and cura­tor led a team of 36 vol­un­teers and stu­dents in the con­struc­tion of a hol­low, larger-than-life bull­dozer whose empty cav­i­ties were filled with soil and com­post to has­ten the artists’ intent for the art­work to decom­pose and pro­vide fod­der for new growth.

This richly illus­trated, 320-page pub­li­ca­tion doc­u­ments the fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory of the bulldozer’s stub­born and unruly pres­ence in the tightly reg­u­lated planned com­mu­nity with texts by cura­tor Bar­bara Cole and Bar­bara Holub. Holub, co-founder of transpar­adiso, an exper­i­men­tal prac­tice in archi­tec­ture, art and urban­ism, will bring insights into dura­tional processes and the sub­se­quent claim­ing ges­tures of the pub­lic, plac­ing them in the con­text of the evo­lu­tion of the neighbourhood.

Con­trib­u­tors include: Bar­bara Cole, Bar­bara Holub, Mark Tim­mings and Hans Sipma.

Grow diy Manual

Holly Schmidt

Book Launched in 2014

From May 1st to Novem­ber 30th, 2011 Other Sights for Artists’ Projects pre­sented Grow, a project by Van­cou­ver artist Holly Schmidt. The Grow DIY Man­ual draws from the writ­ing and cre­ative projects gen­er­ated dur­ing the project.

Inspired by the Farm­ers’ Almanac which is a repos­i­tory for sage advice about gar­den­ing, weather pre­dic­tions and can­ning recipes, the Grow DIY Man­ual brings together crit­i­cal writ­ing, illus­trated DIY projects, weather reports and local sea­sonal recipes. The man­ual acts as both a reflec­tion on the Grow project and a look for­ward to future possibilities.

Con­trib­u­tors include: Bar­bara Cole, Randy Lee Cut­ler, Mag­no­lia Pauker, Alexan­der McNaughton, and Holly Schmidt.

We grate­fully acknowl­edge the sup­port of the Canada Coun­cil for the Arts. Learn more about the project.

I Know What I Want: Open Studio

An Other Sights col­lab­o­ra­tion with The West­ern Front and 221A

Other Sights is col­lab­o­rat­ing with The West­ern Front and 221A on a publicly-sited research inten­sive about the pos­si­ble futures of the Kingsway, Broad­way and Main Street neigh­bour­hood in Van­cou­ver. In addi­tion to con­duct­ing inter­views with local inde­pen­dent busi­ness peo­ple, cul­tural lead­ers and mem­bers of the design and plan­ning com­mu­nity, we gath­ered and cir­cu­lated ideas from neigh­bours at the West­ern Front 40th Anniver­sary party.

Between July 22 and 28, 2013, mem­bers of the Other Sights col­lec­tive cre­ated an Open Stu­dio at the Kings­gate Mall. Using an aer­ial view of the inter­sec­tion, we mod­eled the desires that were offered on site and through othersights.ca. The model adapted, com­bined and recom­bined these ideas through­out the week.

We grate­fully acknowl­edge the finan­cial sup­port of the Province of British Colum­bia. Learn more about the project.
