Alexandra Bircken at BQ, Berlin


Things are not what they seem. It's an old trope. Ostensibly the intelligent few perceives what has been carefully hidden. But things look like other things and you put a whole room of these together and the whole world starts to feel like a hallucination, like a theater. Suspicion for innuendo, for meaning, taints the air. Suspends recognition. We become the paranoid in the funhouse of the world. An art premised on this.
