Alexandra Fraser explores corporeality through the duplication, deconstruction and reconstruction of her own body. The bedding displays the body in it’s most intimate setting. Through patchwork she communicates feelings of detachment and alienation from the body.
Inspired by xerography artists, her technique allows for parts of the body to be replicated in their exact size. Scanning produces an image of exact but misshapen and malleable flesh.
The aesthetic of photocopying references authenticity in terms of physical identity. How do we transform the physical into an image that we portray to the world?
Through the juxtaposition of scanned intimate objects with the deconstructed body, Fraser critiques the objectification of the female form.
