Alexandria Couch

The black people in Alexandria’s work are strictly familiar— composed of multiple references, broken down and pieced together to reconstruct being. The use of found mediums like recycled thread, fabric and paper scraps fuse imagery and materiality to create objects that exist on both physical and temporal planes. The friction that arises from abstraction mimics the reformation of marginal identities adapting to dislocation. They are captured between moments of collective happiness and learning to wield together forces of antagonism with the vast, strange magic that constructs the black identity; How we inhabit a world not built for us.
