“DIG”: Kylie Alexander
1 September-5 October 2015
Artist Reception: Thursday, 24 September, 10PM-1AM
Kylie Alexander’s collages are heavily driven by narrative. “DIG” is, in the simplest terms, about descending. It tells a story about a young couple who come to learn a terrible secret about one another, decide to be together nonetheless, and become increasingly reclusive and isolated from the outside world. The simplicity and scope of the narrative seem inherently biblical or mythological, and subsequently this kind of imagery, along with hazily erotic and claustrophobic images, help us follow the fictional characters in their journey downward.
