Petra Stavast, Banff Centre — Residency


Banff Centre — Residency shows the empty rooms of a 1953 administration building in Alberta, Canada the day before it was slated for demolition. Discarded accoutrements stand in for employees, whose S75 cellphone portraits appear to exist in a disjointed atemporal moment.


Petra Stavast works with image and text to create unsettling formal and emotional tension, often departing from a seemingly insignificant personal observation.
