The Vancouver Carts by Kelly Wood

2 September, 2018
Artist Kelly Wood began photographing Vancouver's 'cart culture' in 2004-2005, documenting the urban phenomena of repurposed shopping carts by the homeless and enterprising 'binners' street workers involved in underground economies such as collecting recyclables.

Over the next six years Kelly Wood had found and shot the contents of more than 100 carts to produce a photography series emblematic of the conjoined realities of homelessness and ongoing gentrification in her home city. The Vancouver Carts: Photography by Kelly Wood includes several essays that explore issues of property and ownership, polarities of wealth increase, material culture, the symbol of the shopping cart and the proximity of the art world to the impacts of gentrification. Wood belongs to the post-Vancouver School generation of artists, whose work came to prominence with that of Jeff Wall, Stan Douglas, Ken Lum and Rodney Graham.
