Maud Haya-Baviera’s new video work, Wish you were here, instils a tantalising dose of escapism at a time when holidaying and long-distance travel remain compromised. She also exposes the conventional tourist gaze and uses Instagram to subvert the limitation of space and time portrayed in the postcards.

She will tease us by revealing one video excerpt a day. Stay tuned!
