Since the late 1960s, Christos Dikeakos' practice has played an important role in the rise of conceptual and post-conceptual art in Vancouver. His works are concerned with the layering of histories over time and the significance of urban spaces as sites to activate memory. His most recent solo show, Domicile/drift, was held in Nov 25 2005 - Jan 16 2006 at Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Vancouver, BC:

             Cardboard is what we use to pack and transport things and products,
             but is, itself, disposable. This one is situated on a loading/parking stall:
             a man's shoe is barely visible under a folded cardboard shelter. There
             are other accidental elemental readings, such as the Ellsworth Kelly
             look-alike monochromes above--an ironic readymade of high formalist
             art. It becomes a consequence of the photograph and for the viewer, but
             not for the drifter who uses the shelter [...]

             Nothing in Vancouver, whether it be foreground or background in many
             of the exhibition images, is to be taken as permanent, or taken for granted.
             The urban fabric reveals many things, not the least of which are value
             systems in a sliding scale of opportunism.
