Self-Portrait as Bunnies by Alex Podesta
- Caroline Kurze
In his ongoing series ‘Self-Portrait as Bunnies’ Alex Podesta explores the rich daydreams, misconceptions and experiences of childhood and pairs them with the filters of adulthood, experience and education.
The result is a humorous but also contradictory look on himself as a grown up in a childlike bunny costume, playing with his doppelgangers. With his works Alex Podesta examines the creative and comprehensive naiveté of youth and the role of fantasy, ‘othering’ and conflict in nascent self-awareness.
