20 Sep Marsia Alexander-Clarke: Ojos Profundos
Marsia Alexander-Clarke’s exhibition of video works and prints explores the nuances of cultural identity and belonging. Born and raised in Chile but living most of her life in America, Alexander-Clarke often felt she never fully belonged to either culture. She describes this experience as akin to seeing the world through a keyhole, getting only a glimpse into the different worlds in which she lived. This point of view is reflected in her video works, in which she layers and repeats thin slivers of video imagery, obscuring a wider view. Music is an important source for the underlying structure of Alexander-Clarke’s compositions. In her multimedia installations, configurations of flickering lines operate in concert with choral arrangements to create a meditative experience of sound and image.
