Rabbit Lane: Douglas Coupland
West Vancouver Art Museum, West Vancouver, BC - To May 28
Writer, designer and visual artist Douglas Coupland, who grew up in West Vancouver, has created a series of staged photographs inspired by his 1998 novel Girlfriend in a Coma. Commissioned by the WVAM, the series was shot on the North Shore using volunteer models and retro cars and clothing borrowed from the community. The photos may be most remarkable, however, for the way they spotlight examples of West Coast Modern residential architecture, now rapidly disappearing from the local landscape.
