Multi-disciplinary artist, Alyson Pou, creates a cluster of nine long dark dresses hovering in the center of the gallery, their full and billowing skirts collide as they madly spin frozen in their attempt to reach the ceiling. A warren of life-size white rabbits are scattered around the outer edges of the scene gazing transfixed upon the scene through human-like eyes.
Through a collage of dreams, recounted stories, objects, movement… Alyson Pou peels and reveals the layers of clothing that form our identity. Her [installations] speak directly to the intellect and the intuition. Weaving together the personal and the social, Pou's work evokes emotionally charged archetypes. With a background in modern dance, visual art and writing her work wonderfully combines movement, text, and objects.
