Alex Da Corte turns rooms into stage sets that bombard the viewer with visual and sonic elements. "A Season in He’ll" is inspired by Arthur Rimbaud's poem "A Season in Hell" with the added influence of Disney animations such as "Fantasia" and "Beauty and the Beast.” Beyond Disney, De Corte draws on a myriad of pop culture sources.
These works are three-dimensional assemblage/environments with brightly painted walls, tiled and carpeted floors and a mix of appropriated images and objects. The works are purposely indulgent and over the top, demanding viewers to sit, read, listen and watch in order to get a feeling for how the disparate elements add up to a coherent whole — of course, what that whole may be is up to you.
