Alexander Korzer-Robinson-sculpted books
AboutThe Searchers contemporary presents a new collection of sculpted tomes fresh from the cutting edge of Bristol artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson, whose extraordinary creative practice has earned him a global following.
For this exhibition he has directed his precise wizardry to a group of volumes on the subject of medicine, obsessively carving his way through âGrays Anatomy' and a âLarousse Medical'.
Alex's work has evolved within the tradition of collage but by drawing on his background in psychology and giving free reign to the notion of the âinner landscape' he elegantly transforms these forgotten books into thoroughly modern masterpieces with a universal appeal, His use of antiquarian books suggests both an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia that results in complex narrative scenarios.
âWe create our own past from fragments of reality in a process that combines the willful aspects of remembering and forgetting with the coincidental and unconscious' AKR
