I saw myself on the street
An impressive exhibition was opened in the Sala Políglota de ´ace where Alexander Squier’s work can be seen after his production residency.
The exhibition reflects the concerns of the young artist who is interested in human relationships, in the ways, “types” or “personalities” that both people and himself develop to communicate.
The installation is conceived as a game of characters in subtle movement. The works hang at different levels and heights in the Polyglot Hall, establishing a game and dialogue between them, thus creating a visual and sound universe – although no exhibition is not accompanied by sound.
I saw myself on the street reflects all these concerns and perceptions that have been the basis for developing his project through the game of describing, identifying and personifying who the artist has around him.
I SAW MYSELF ON THE STREET (by Alexander Squier)
We all have an inherent drive to judge, describe, personify, and identify each and every thing around us. People develop, preserve, and collect “types” as well as physical and auditory meanings to use as reference. If everyone has a different perception (in their own reality) of everyone else, does this mean that there are also innumerable perceptions of each other? What about the diverse and constantly changing perceptions of oneself?
