An art installation by Los Angeles artist Erika Vogt that combines pulleys, plaster, found objects, drawings, and videos to create tension between our understanding of objects and to challenge prescribed art-making systems.
Erika Vogt received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Vogt has had solo exhibitions at Overduin and Kite, Los Angeles, and Simone Subal Gallery, New York. Her work has been included in a number of group exhibitions at such venues as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (as part of 2010, the 75th Whitney Biennial); Foam, Amsterdam, Netherlands; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Oregon; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (as part of the Los Angeles biennial Made in L.A. 2012). She lives and works in Los Angeles, California; this is her first solo museum exhibition.
