Alexandre Singh enjoys mixing sources and heterogeneous tales favouring analogies and the emergence of a new reality and arborescence. His texts, performances, plays and installations carry with them references ranging from Ikea catalogues to the Essays of Montaigne, H.P Lovecraft, Walt Disney, scientific imagery, Cicero and Aristophanes, without any thought for hierarchy. The spectator is invited to make his way through this twisting universe and to create indefinable links in order to freely construct his own narrative. From words, references and ideas developed in the course of his interviews, readings, etc… the artist visually renders the meanings that he extrapolates, thus favouring multiple interpretations.

Alexandre Singh se plaît à entremêler sources et récits hétéroclites favorisant les analogies et l’émergence d’une nouvelle réalité en arborescence. Ses textes, performances, pièces de théâtre ou installations charrient des références allant des catalogues Ikea aux Essais de Montaigne en passant par H.P Lovecraft, Walt Disney, l’imagerie scientifique, Cicéron et Aristophane, sans hiérarchie. Le spectateur est invité à se frayer un passage au sein de cet univers en circonvolutions et à créer des liens indéfinis, afin de construire librement sa propre narration. A partir de mots, de références et d’idées développées lors de ces entretiens, ces lectures, etc…l’artiste rend visuellement les significations qu’il extrapole de manière à favoriser une multiplicité de lectures.
