Vikky Alexander @ Canada Gallery
2 March 2018 - 19 May 2018
In the 1980s Vikky Alexander played a significant role in the group of artists now known as “The Pictures Generation”, who posed a new set of questions concerning art and the nature of representation. The core of Alexander’s artistic proposition lies in the fantastic – in both the literal and figurative senses of the words. While playful, she uses a variety of media and techniques to make her point: mirrors, photographic landscape murals, postcards collected on her travels, her own photography and video. For her first UK exhibition, ‘The Spoils of the Park’, Alexander presents colour photographs and pencil/watercolour drawings that reflect her interest in histories of architecture and design, focusing on locations such as the opulent grounds and interiors of European stately homes, places that speak to desire, aspiration, wealth, class and ideas of belonging.
