Alexander in Mimesis tells the story of myself making an artwork, describing the story of myself making an artwork. In many ways the US is a dreamlike reflection of the UK, and during my time there I came to see Manchester, New Hampshire, as a kind of Manchester 2; in response I wanted to create a kind of Alexander 2 to inhabit the foreign land.
The resulting piece is a semi-autobiographical, science-fiction adventure which follows Alexander on his artistic journey; through the old factories and graveyards, sports bars and antique shops, museums and supermarkets, dating apps and stem cell research facilities, with a harrowing glimpse into the mysterious beings who live beyond the sky.
