Store is the result of two months’ work that was created during Jamison Chās Banks’ time at the Vital Spaces studio in the Spring of 2019. Banks’ objective was to create individual works as memory snapshots that pertained to commerce and held a certain significance from various phases of his own memory. Ideas of labor, consumerism, advertising, and marketing permeate the work, but the focus is about the memorable connections we make to stores and the items held within it. It is the artist’s hope that through this temporary installation, the viewer will reexamine their own memories connected to these somewhat universal storeroom items and places, and make simple acknowledgements about ideas that are providing a service for community.
