ALICE ANDERSON


Alice Anderson's work for Tainted Love follows a series started at the Freud Museum in London last spring. Taking the act of remembering as a creative process where memory constantly changes Anderson re-staged childhood ritual culminating with binding-up grids and the entire master’s house with dolls’ hair and threads.
  Here Anderson is binding up personal objects from her studio with copper thread. These objects are woven in a liberating act. Tightened with threads, objects are set free from their primary utility and are reveal new shapes provoking a tension between the figurative and the abstract.

Born and based in London, Anderson grew up in Algeria and France. She studied with Christian Boltanski at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and completed an MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2004. Recently her work has been shown at Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Nichido Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Busan Biennale, South Korea; Fondation Cartier, Paris; The Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Germany and Tate Liverpool, Liverpool.
