Alpha & is an exploration of the body and the body in time. The exhibition proposes, or questions, transient acts and their permanence in the physical world.

In Alpha & traces of the figure are evident in physical depictions of the human form (heads, hands, torsos), handcrafted efforts (stitching, burning, molding, welding, collage), and physically imposing sculptural works. Disembodiment and disintegration of the figure contradict a fixed physicality and singularity visible in each work. Here, the re-imagination of the body, together with endlessly renewable narrative possibilities, signals a new means for permanence, survival, and perseverance.
