Alexa Horochowski -- Patch (Capitalocene)
2.75 x 4 inches
Edition of 100
In 2020, Alexa Horochowski began working on a monumental series of flags which translate the most pressing discourses of our current era into trenchant iconography. Three works from this series are included in Dreamsong's exhibition "In Search of Lost Time".
One of Horochowksi's flags, a work-in-progress, visually implicates those responsible for the insurrection and storming of the capitol on January 6th, 2021. The flag will be adorned with a series of patches which are available as separate pieces exclusively at Dreamsong.
