Le Chevalier aux Miroirs 2004
Alexander Knox is a Melbourne based artist working with a wide range of techniques to produce an architecture of effects. Through a combination of lighting, optics, audio, kinetic and formal elements he engages with ideas of representation of myth and spirituality within the late capitalist spectacle. Knox studied public art at RMIT and has a background in film and industrial design. He has exhibited widely both in Australia and overseas including the UseBy Asia-Pacific Artist's Initiatives Project 1(Melbourne 2001) & 2 (Bangkok 2002). Recent commissions include two major sculpture projects in Melbourne Docklands. Knox's residency will involve the production of a large kinetic work for 'Bed' a new mixed-use art venue in Bangkok.
