Working in the media of painting, video, photography and sculpture, Alexandra Hopf reconstructs the avant-garde within her own museological approach. She is the auteur of all forces, dramaturgically referencing fashion, design, film, theatre and exhibition history. Hopf obscures the rich art historical sources through which she questions frames of references. She creates discourses of knowledge in her work appearing from the past yet from a contemporary polyphonic position. The viewer is lead anew into the enticing past to rediscover. Hopf reawakens the pictorial consciousness from a contemporary artist’s point of view; one of a pluralistic standpoint: we are both here and there. Her work imaginatively returns to 20thcentury successes and failures, oscillating between beginnings and endings.
