Alex Plumb

b. 1991

Alex Plumb works within the lens-based discipline of constructed video. His multi-channel video practice attempts to amplify questions about the psychological interplay between the subject depicted, the site of performance, and how the work unfolds through the slow release promise of imminent rupture. By working in the space between the real and the imagined, the familiar and the unknown, an ambiguous other emerges.
