St├ęphane Alexis Deep Cs

May 5–Jun 3,  2023

Deep Cs combines two independent projects by St├ęphane Alexis. The first, Chains & Crowns, explores afro hairstyles and their impact on culture from a socio-historical standpoint. As the lineage of these hairstyles is followed, we find opportunities to understand members of the culture from a technical standpoint, maintenance and styling, and the history of the people and persons.

The second, The Collection, deals with a group of symbolic objects that function as portals into the subconscious. These works utilize the same approach as surrealists like Salvador Dali and Andr├ę Masson, to explore these concepts of healing through photograph and multichannel installations.
