Eric Tkaczyk is an interdisciplinary, multimedia artist who lives and practices on the ancestral and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-waututh) First Nations. Recent exhibitions include a distance, a heart felt at Duplex Artist Society (2022), beyond the scrim at the Mount Pleasant Community Art Screen (2022), and /ˈsent(ə)nəl/ at Burrard Arts Foundation’s Garage in Vancouver, BC (2021-22). Tkaczyk’s work /ˈsent(ə)nəl/ was featured in an article by Clara Dubber in Discorder Magazine (2022). He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2020). He is also a board member and co-facilitator at Duplex Artist Society.
Navigating spaces of both real and unreal, his work explores notions of disembodiment, fragmentation, and transience through queer sensibilities. In his digital-performances, Tkaczyk acknowledges the deracialization of his work as a white-bodied subject.
