Interview with Alex Passapera by our own Danielle Ezzo

Posted by on Aug 14, 2009 in Interviews | 0 comments

Anagnorisis would like to share with you an interview with Alex Passapera about his work and upcoming exhibition, “Feral”: 1. So what brought you to this medium in the first place?

Anagnorisis is proud to present Alex Passapera’s solo show, “Feral“. Artist Statement: This current body of work is my attempt to bring to life certain ideas and inspirations that I have had over the past year.

Only in special moments to we feel something bubble up from an ancient source. I began using the predator as a template...

I’ve always had a genuine interest in the grotesque – beauty is in the mistakes. Now trying to sculpt this fascination into practical knowledge; reeducating myself through history and applying it to the arts. My mind wants to make grotesque a movement. What? I mean, It has been around for CENTURIES!
