Trivial Pursuit

Nov 14, 2002 , vol. 25, no. 6

A grassy field, the sound of falling water and a view of towering urban canyon walls: this is the scene chosen by SFU contemporary arts students Reece Terris and Kristina Ona for their installation, Trailor. Parked in the Georgia Street front yard of the Vancouver Art Gallery, one side of the semi-vintage camper looks ordinary. But a quick look around the back reveals all. Gum boots at the door, beer cans on the table, sleeping bags in the loft, tasteful pin-up poster on the wall and the definitive green box of that Great Canadian pastime, Trivial Pursuit, sitting ajar on the bench seat.
