ABOUT THIS WORK
The work of Alexander Sporre addresses the philosophical and often poetic dimensions of success and failure as well as the illusion of a knowable and rational self.
After suffering an unexpected case of burnout a few years ago, he was suddenly struck with an intensified perception of personal failure. During his slow journey towards recovery, he realized that perhaps these feelings of defeat were instrumental in revealing the essentially illusory nature of the self.
Ever since his recovery he has been documenting his direct surroundings in an effort to see beyond the veil of our perceived reality. In his work this is expressed in imagery of an imperfect and lyrical nature.
