‘The Apartment’

Video Installation

Townhouse

2018


‘The Apartment’ was created during a residency in a townhouse a block from the family's first rented apartment home in west Tampa.


‘The Apartment’ reflects on the effects of, and changes of lifestyle within, the anthropocene. Where the artist's mother at her age was married and pregnant, the artist as a late millennial is in no position to be considering these rites of life. All spaces of the town house were treated as an installation including the kitchen stove, fridge, bathroom, and bedrooms. The apartment has a characteristic green staircase, in which here Ponce re-enacts her family member’s actions of walking up the stairs to the home.
