Discarded Household Goods Transformed Into An Art Experience

Table of Contents


Vancouver artist Reece Terris’ Ought Apartment looked at the relationship between architectural spaces and our common experiences and encounters within them. Displayed throughout 2009 at The Vancouver Art Gallery, Ought Apartment combined Terris’ art practice with his experience as a renovation contractor in a six-story installation rising up through the main atrium in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s rotunda.

He transformed recycled and discarded household goods into an inclusive work that commented on interior decoration and renovation as social phenomena.
