Backyard Social - Glass Box Project - Invitation
Time & Location
About the event
Landline started from an invitation and evolved into a collaboration. Consisting of walks around Kingsway-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood, reading poetry and rebuilding a gate, Landline highlighted the complexity of human relations, our particular relationship to art and the community that surrounds us or our connection to the community that we build and we feel belonged to. Landline didn’t have a start date and it’s intricate nature of conversations defies a definite ending. Herewith, we would like to invite the community to join us in celeberation of this project on July 30th.

Setareh Yasan is interested in balancing academic research with hands-on practice, her work attempts to conflate literature with the visual language of forms. Yasan's past academic research has been concerned with the social, political and philosophical understandings of anxiety from early twentieth-century to present time, with the focus on the existential definition of anxiety and its transcendental potentiality. Currently, her research focuses on the concept of belonging, nearness and the possibility of transforming identity-politics within the fabric of social relations. With gratitude, as a guest, Yasan lives and works in Vancouver, BC located on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
