Wilder Alison
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Flatbush



ARTIST STATEMENT: I have long been interested in creating fabric. My background lies largely in textiles, and I’ve spent the past several years making work that explores the numerous possibilities of fabric- and clothing-based sculpture, painting, and installation. Grounded in color and surface design, my work often engages with dysphoria relating to industrial production and gender performativity. Instead of treating this dysphoria cynically, I call on it as inspiration for transforming objects from one form or medium into another. I aim to both neutralize and fetishize the use of garish colors, textiles and trash through processes of material transformation. I think of the objects produced thereby as ambiguous, or "androgynous," standing in contrast to both the mono-functional products of the assembly line and the fixed genders of conventional subjectivity.
