Darker Imposter

Erika Vogt
November 11–17, 2013

Erika Vogt filmed and edited Darker Imposter during her Frieze Film commission production residency at EMPAC. The video combined densely layered and quickly edited images, including drawings and animations collected throughout the preceding months, and footage of her own sculptures and EMPAC’s collection of gongs. Erika Vogt employs 16mm film, video, animation, and sculpture to explore the intersection of science and the supernatural. She has been included in major international shows including at the New Museum, New York City; Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds; Triangle, Marseille; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; SFMOMA.

Curated and produced in collaboration with Nicola Lees (Frieze Foundation, London).
