Nils Alix-Tabeling, Madison BycroftOn 23/11/2019 at 5pm
Nils Alix-Tabeling was born in Paris in 1991. He lives and works between Paris and Brussels. His practice encapsulates sculpture, performance, writing and work using video and sound installations. The bodies described in his sculptural practice bear various research approaches onto the possible futures of humanity as a species, as well as the influence of ideologies coming from our own bodily experiences. This fluidity of forms brings to mind the permeability of our identities and the dissolution of the borders between the environment and ourselves. The sculptures are often activated by performances or films and, by becoming accessories or characters, they take on allegorical or eroticised voices and identities. His recent expositions have included Florilège at Jupiter Wood London, 100 Artistes dans la Ville in Montpellier, Somewhere in Between in Bozar Bruxelles, Hypersea, curated by Juliette Desorgues as part of the Monte Carlo Art Fair in Monaco, and Le Bétyle d’Ail, an operetta initially presented at Komplot Bruxelles then at the Kunstraum London. At the same time, Nils Alix-Tabeling has been developing a curatorial practice, the most recent example of which has been the exhibition Pastoral Love, at the Lucas Hirsch Gallery in Dusseldorf.
