Alex Farrar’s (1986) practice is based on the artistic use of the exhibition form as a shared space to consider the feelingful ways that social, political, environmental and economic worlds are embodied. His exhibitions are typically made from groupings of individual works, which he develops through a poetic understanding of materials and techniques, ranging from metal casting to embroidery. Recent projects have explored social processes (teaching/learning, interpersonal relations) as collaborative, open ended strategic for approaching the exhibition as an experimental civic space.
Alex Farrar studied at Leeds College of Art, UK, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
