Alex Ross at David Krut
Alexandra Ross’ 3rd solo exhibition 1:1, opened at David Krut Projects 142 Jan Smuts Ave on 2nd June. In this exhibition:
Dialogue, relationship, mirroring and reflection are the central themes, not only in the individual works, but in the installation as a whole. 1:1 continues the artist’s ongoing interest in the relationship of original to copy and of reality to illusion but also broadens its scope to explore the intersection of art, gallery, artist and viewer, and of public and private space. Through a series of duplications, mirror images and illusions, Ross playfully manipulates the real gallery to suggest an imaginary place that is part private artist’s studio, part hall of mirrors and part Rorschach inkblot test.
