Eric Watts (November 9 - December 29, 2014)
Eric Watts is a Chicago-based artist working in moving image and installation. His work questions the filmic structure of convincing historical narratives in relation to space, place and landscape. Watts’ installations examine the connections between cinematic trope, editing and believability as means to understand the relations between image, experience and memory. He has exhibited at spaces including Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff, AB), Regina Rex (New York, NY), and The Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts (Chicago, IL). Watts earned his MFA from the University of Chicago in 2012 and his BFA from The School of Visual Arts (New York) in 2009 culminating in an MA Exchange program at The Royal College of Art (London, UK). He is currently working on a large-scale project that explores individual and collective interpretations of the concept of Northerliness in relation to the Canadian landscape. Residencies in 2014 at The Banff Centre (Winterjourney), Banff, AB and The Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC), Dawson City, YT support work on this project.
