    The World of Awe

    World of Awe is a cross-disciplinary project centering around The Traveler’s Journal, an original narrative started in 1994 and completed in 2011. Set in an undetermined future past, the diaristic and epistolary narrative reveals the story of a lone traveler who searches for a lost treasure in a parallel world called Sunset/Sunrise. The portal to this world is on 419 East 6th Street in Manhattan.
    The narrative first appeared in paintings, followed by performance and the early net art website Love Letters from a World of Awe in 1995. Since then, the project has expanded into other media including sculpture, installation, and Textworks. Digital culture and technology of the 80’s and 90’s are central to the narrative, functioning as literary and visual devices to form the identity of the traveler.

  • Yael Kanarek
  • Through storytelling and translation, Kanarek reshapes cultural associations of language. Her work enters spaces of meaning determined by global networks and her observation of the Internet as a metaphorical space written in human and computer languages. In recent years, her creative practice centers on the dynamics and form of multilingualism and the synchronization of narrative with standard time.
    Selected for the 2002 Whitney Biennial, exhibitions of her work also include The Drawing Center, New York; Beral Madra Contemporary Art, Istanbul; National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens; CU Museum, Boulder; Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University; The Jewish Museum, New York; Exit Art; The Kitchen; American Museum of the Moving Image, New York; LIMN Gallery, San Francisco; Holster Projects, London; Wood Street Galleries, Pittsburgh; bitforms gallery, New York; Nelly Aman, Tel Aviv; Boston CyberArts Festival; HVCCA, Peekskill; Arena 1, Santa Monica; California College of the Arts, San Francisco; Orsini Palace, Bomarzo; and Sala Uno Gallery, Rome. Kanarek’s work has also been shown in New York at Kenny Schachter Contemporary, Silverstein Gallery, Ronald Feldman Gallery, Derek Eller Gallery, A.I.R Gallery, 303 Gallery, Schroeder Romero Gallery, and the Art in Embassies program of the US States Department.
