Alexis Teplin, Drag, Push, HOOT, 2016
October 2019 – February 2020
A new body of work by U.S. born artist Alexis Teplin will premier at Bluecoat in October, in her first major UK exhibition.
Teplin’s work crosses between painting, performance and film. The artist draws parallels between the process of these art forms.
Fragments of abstraction within her paintings combine to suggest glimmers of figuration; whilst in her performance and film work, a similarly piecemeal assembly of quotes and gestures ranging from personal aphorisms to grand theatrical gestures, from the Labour manifesto to the films of Fellini.
