Alex da Corte works with objects and materials that are detached from their original function to give them new potential both symbolically and formally. In working with these objects, Da Corte tries to put aside his own touch in order to reveal and locate the previous touches, the objects own story. In Alex Da Corte’s artwork objects can even act as stand-ins for people: they represent another kind of language that we can pair together to create these sentences that turn into poetry.
