Emerging Vancouver-based artist Erica Stocking creates a new site-specific installation consisting of a bachelor apartment visible from both inside and outside Gallery Two. The contents of the apartment will be on loan from the Sears Department Store directly across the street. Minimal aesthetic and phenomenological relationships with viewers will be complicated by narrative spectacle. The theatricality of Proscenium Home conflates public and private space, shopping and cultural engagement, exhibitionism and voyeurism.
Erica Stocking received her BFA from The Emily Carr Institute in 2004. She has exhibited locally at Artspeak Gallery, Lobby Gallery, Helen Pitt Gallery ARC, and the Butchershop Gallery. She is a founding member of Norma, a Vancouver based collective whose performance and installation works have been exhibited locally at Artspeak, LIVE Biennial of Performance Art, grunt gallery, and Access ARC. She currently lives and works in Vancouver, BC.
