Stephen working on the prototype for the Effigie piece that is discussed in the interview. The seventeen foot prototype is in cardboard and Effigie will be in Corten steel.

The materials, procedures and subject of Stephen Schofield’s sculpture, drawing and performance practices spring from the laboratories and private spaces of the home: the kitchen, the bathroom and the garden.

He has presented major ensembles of his work at the Power Plant, Toronto, le Musée d’art contemporain, la Biennale de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and in France at the CAC de Vassivère, l’Aquarium, and the CREDAC. In 2012, he presented new work at the Cue Foundation, New York. The inauguration of a major group of five sculptures for the Quartier des spectacles in Montréal will take place in May 2016.

The bureau d’art public of Montréal regularly posts images of his project for the Quartier des spectacles. Click here to see those on Facebook.
