Zoe Leonard

The series ‘You see I am here after all’ by Zoe Leonard.

A work comprising several thousand vintage postcards of Niagara Falls, dating from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Rendered stereotypical and generic through repetition over decades, these landscape motifs are emblematic of mass culture’s transformation of natural sites into tourist destinations. As installed at the Dia Art Foundation, Beacon, NY.

‘Tropical Beach’ (2007) (found postcards) by Katerina Drzková.

Katerina Drzkova has been systematically collecting pairs of the same picture-postcards from the 1960s to the 1980s. These postcards are never identical. They usually differ in several details in the picture. In ‘Tropical Beach’ a time shift of several minutes is visible. On each postcard a different photographer is stated; the post offices and the times when the postcards were sent are also varying. The addressee is the same person.
