Reece Terris is a Vancouver based artist whose work alters the expected experiential qualities of a place or object through an amplification or shift in the primary function of an original design.
Past projects include a six-storey apartment building temporarily installed in the rotunda of the Vancouver Art Gallery, a pedestrian wooden bridge connecting two residential homes, and an architectural false front added to the existing false front of an artist-run centre.
His practice is manifest through a variety of media, including sculpture, performance, installation, and photography.
Reece Terris graduated with a BFA from Simon Fraser University in 2005 and is a previous recipient of the VIVA award. He has had solo and group exhibitions at venues such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver; The Walter Phillips Gallery at the Banff Centre, Banff; Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey; The Western Front, Vancouver; Anna Leonowens Gallery at NSCAD, Halifax; and The Power Plant, Toronto. His monumental project Good-Bye Work (2012) was most recently featured in the group exhibition Catagenisis, presented by the Philaldelphia Sculptor’s Society in Philadelphia, PA.
