Erika Scott is a Brisbane-based artist who predominantly works in sculpture and installation. Scott’s visual language unfolds through a variety of media, often reassembling and modifying discarded household objects, furniture and popular culture debris – a maximalist and often overwhelming DIY bricolage. The environments and constructions that Scott creates encourage an unsettling ambivalence, part attraction and repulsion, anxiety and relaxation.
Her recent solo exhibitions include The Dutch Aquarium, Outer Space, Brisbane; The Barnacle Lovers, Wreckers ARI, Brisbane; and Pestorius Sweeney House Exhibition, Pestorius Projects, Brisbane. Scott completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane (2010). Scott is also the founding director of local ARI The Soylent Spot.
At the end of her residency with SQ, Scott collaborated with another SQ member and artist Hermann Schraut. Their exhibition 'Drone Jewellery Box' was hosted at 'The Shed' on November 4, 2019.
