About Alex Hubbard
Alex Hubbard records himself assembling, manipulating, and destroying everyday objects, tightly framed and shot from above to form a painterly image. In his 2007 series "The Collapse of the Expanded Field," he arranges, smashes, spray-paints, and clears away a vase of flowers. Referencing Roman Signer and Peter Fischli & David Weiss in its use of slapstick and performative action, Hubbard’s emphasis on materiality also recalls Hans Namuth's films of Jackson Pollock at work. In the live Annotated Plans for an Evacuation performance at the Whitney (2010), the artist continuously altered a used car.
American, b. 1975, Toledo, OR, United States, based in Los Angeles, CA, United States
