Abstract (English)

"Coming Soon! documents Diyan Achjadi’s 2018-19 public art project for the City of Vancouver. The project was a site-specific interrogation of questions of value, temporality and labour. Each month for the period of one year, Achjadi produced a series of hand-printed posters and installed them onto the structures surrounding construction sites throughout the city, mirroring the landscapes around new developments themselves. Over the course of that time the posters—hand-drawn and hand-printed through laborious processes of silkscreen, etching, lithography and polymer plate relief—accumulated and, left to the effects of the elements and actions of passersby, decayed, were transformed by graffiti and even removed." -- Publisher's website.
