Alasdair Rees: Duet
Alasdair Rees weaves poetry into compelling performance and moving-image works. His project, Duet, incorporates text, performance and objects that combine references from video games, art history, literature and mythology to explore themes of transformation, growth and the formation of identity.
The artist has developed a performance that draws from video game imagery as well as Picasso’s Tête de Faune. Rees will perform in the Connect Gallery on the second Saturday of each month at 1 PM: July 8, August 12, September 9, October 14.
