Biography

Equally concerned with objects and ideas, Alexandre Singh’s work is hard to categorize. He works conceptually, presenting lectures that weave fact and fiction, photo-collages, and installations. Referencing diverse disciplines such as science, business, magic, industry, and art history, Singh’s projects uncover unexpected connections and intersections. In his “Assembly Instructions” series, such as (IKEA) (2008), Singh starts with the furniture store’s floor plan, and, using images presented on projectors and transparencies, crafts a philosophical narrative about the nature of human consciousness.
