Alison Alder - 'NEWSCRAP'

Alison Alder

30 Nov 2018 to 9 Feb 2019

The screen prints and video in NEWSCRAP record the artist’s obsession with collecting, and sometimes commenting on, political reportage from major newspapers in both Australia and the USA. Partly born from anger, sometimes from the confusion of dejá vu, but rarely from any sense of carefree mirth, Alison Alder highlights the absurdity of modern politics, and her fascination with print as a political act, as the presses roll day after day.
