I was first attracted to Alejandra Laviada’s work becuase of the colours, then because of the unusual objects that were the colours and then … well I was hooked.
Look at all these great photographs:
This is my favourite photograph (below):
She “explores the shifting relationship between photography and sculpture, whereby ordinary objects are stripped of their traditional function and perceived differently. Each body of work is an attempt to record pieces of history that are simultaneously being erased and created, and reflect a city struggling to reconcile past and future histories”.
I could not resist these chairs. The chair on the left-hand-side (below) is almost cute.
I love the way Alejandra has made interesting and beautiful the things we would ordinarily have either thrown away or washed.
