Alexander Dluzalt. 22 years old. I live in Mexico City. I studied at Facultad de Artes y Diseño, I´ve accomplished eight solo exhibitions and participated in nineteen group exhibitions, among them ETHOS in "Expo Bancomer Santa Fe", PRESIÓN in "La Grieta", La Plata, Argentinta, and Photo Press Nikon 2016. I am co-founder and co-director of Comunidad Sí. I am part of Presencias Liminales, a theater company, as an actor.
When I was 8 I bought an analog camera. A mess, veiled the movie, but I loved the experience. After that I had a cell phone with camera and it used to shoot everything. I decided to study photography and I started in the Visual Arts career. I did not do the photography until the third year, because my interests changed but when I went back it was not only to take photos, but to create photographs; I found a big difference. I like photography as photography, not as a medium. I am interested in light, material and forms, also in its use as a file and documents.
"I don´t have a style, every photo, every series, every problem requires a different solution."
This story will be the most peculiar of blnc magazine, because the process was very different. I've made little fashion photography and I'm interested in it. But using designers clothes, having a customer as a brand or a campaign, the proposal degrades. This is very noticeable. So I steal. I use the couché paper magazines and experiment on them with my interests and what is the responsibility of the public, the fashion consumption using the bodies as things in the models, sexism and racism, when they create models to follow, prototypes of life, molds,NEXT
In October we will present ANY|BODY|ONE in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mx, a gateway-video-installation-performance; transformation of signs and creation of symbols, a transdisciplinary event based on the collaboration of different areas and disciplines. I work it and direct it with Comunidad Sí, a couple of friends an
Creative crisis (as always, in good times of progress). Fashion has created design categories and designers, and within these, they all do the same. There is no risk and therefore there is no proposal. There is a stagnation that reveals the comfort by earnings.
There are more and more interested in the scene in Mexico. I bet on the recently graduated designers or those who just create a brand, because they are the least united to the market and therefore their interests, ideas and collections are richer in content and proposal, Conceptual and aesthetic. Something I celebrate is the creation of groups and young people who seek to redefine the contents, clothing for local consumption, not only European molds that in no way adapt to the corporality of here, as well as models that change the aesthetics of what called "Exotic" when it has always been our norm; our corporality and skin tones.
Instagram, Tumblr, fashion magazines, paint, of course in visual arts, theatre, performance, touching everything and at clothes stores
"Propose practical solutions to the questioned and contradictory that is problematic and therefore, interesting."
