Ought Apartment is a six-storey installation that features six full-scale apartments stacked one upon the other. Each apartment level is fully furnished exclusively with original items from the 1950s though to the present decade and includes a kitchen, living room and bathroom. Each floor represents the look of one particular decade, thus becoming emblematic of that period’s interior design and domestic living.

Ought Apartment calls attention to the cyclical nature of fashion within home décor and our total compliance in keeping up-to-date, and is also a critique of the ethical and environmental costs to which we will satisfy the ideal that our home is a reflection of ourselves.

This work has been commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery for installation in 2009.

Process shots and concept drawings for Ought Apartment can be seen at the Jennifer Kostuik Gallery.

Canadian Art featured the Kostuik Exhibition, February 5-March 21, 2009.
