Erika Vogt (b. 1973, New Jersey, USA) lives and works in Los Angeles.
She has had solo exhibitions at New Museum, New York (2013); Simone Subal Gallery, New York (2012) and
Overduin and Kite, Los Angeles, (2011).
Her work has been included in a number of group exhibitions at venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (as part of 2010, the 75th Whitney Biennial; 2010); Foam, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2011); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2011); Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2011); Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, OR (2012); and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (as part of the Los Angeles Biennial Made in LA 2012).
In 2014, Vogt had her first UK solo show at The Hepworth Wakefield, presenting a site specific installation in The Calder.
‘The Calder comprises a system of ropes and pulleys that I have been working with since 2012. They create a series of counterbalances between sculpture placed on the floor and others suspended in space. This system allows the installation to expand or contract depending on the space of the gallery, so it’s really inherently site-responsive.’
