The Militant Artist
Emerged into arts since her childhood, her drawings, paintings and installations bring to us a poetical universe. The eager to underline the ecological emergency was first presented by the Bortone Gallery in 2013. Ever since, Alexandra MAS’ art shorts present a real concern regarding the relation men vs nature. Often her media is her own body, filled with anger and despair, where the identity quest is superposed to the Earth’s dramatic evolution.
Illustrated by an ancient demiurge or a future primitive human, a hysterical woman or a disturbing distorted self portrait, she is raising questions with her performances or videos.
A rising Tide of Plastic
We can flood you with numbers and disastrous descriptions. Reality is much worse than what you can imagine until you see it with your own eyes. We throw away 50 bilions plastic bottles per year!
A sea of plastic - The numbers are building the sound track, along with wild sea animals screams, children and youngsters talking to You in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Indian, Chinese (with the voice of actress Xin Wang) and of course Italian, Alexandra Mas is inviting you to feel them as music sounds, to let yourself be bothered and eventually affected.
