In Case We Meet

Artist-in-residence. Special production. Co-sponsored by A Space, Goethe Institute, Vancouver Art Gallery.

This is unusual I know. Yet the same thing has happened the day before. There is nothing special about a man opening the door, coming inside, tossing the snow off his boots and asking if somebody could show him my tape. Of course I could. I thought: oh no, not that again. It was too late. I was so curious to see if the same thing would happen again. And it happened. Like the first time. The man had become a dog. A dog. I knew that art could do it, you bet, but you imagine my feelings? – Jochen Gerz (excerpt from part 4. I Knew That Art Could Do It)
