Working as an “anthropologist of the immediate past,” artist Alex Da Corte creates sculpture with the colorful artifacts of turn-of-the-21st-century consumer culture. Da Corte’s reworked everyday objects—both the generic and the branded—take on an otherworldly quality in his constructed environments, videos, and digitally collaged images, or as material, in the case of his shampoo paintings. “I don’t think of sculpture as static, as dead objects. I think of them as tracing an action,” the artist has said of his work. “Sculpture is the unraveling of a familiar object.” In Da Corte’s practice, such unraveling often involves bright colors and crisp advertising imagery, and cameos by pop-culture figures like an ersatz version of Eminem played by the artist himself.
