Fusebox Artist-in-Residence: FK Alexander

FK Alexander

FK Alexander is a Scottish performance artist, who’s lifework attempts to force feed mania influenced visions about  new language, new love, and new violence upon groups of civilians across various dimensions with varying outcomes.

This work regularly employs noise music, strobes, hammers, flashing images and repetition.

FK makes primarily action based, often durational, aesthetically driven, sensation focused work that can be found in art spaces, outside, theatres, and nightclubs.

Previous work has been concerned with ideas of recovery, radical wellness, harsh meditation, judy garland, princess diana, transmitted aggression, spite and love.

Sometimes ridiculous, sometimes beautiful, always present, always for real.
