Alexander Schellow deals closely with relations between space, perception and action at the junction of artistic and scientific research. His work revolves around a possible documentation on questions of orientation, or of the ways attention is scattered and distributed into given spaces. Since 1999, he has been working on reconstruction processes from memory, based on an ongoing daily drawing practice. This generates different formats often evolving over a long period of time. They build series of drawings, animations, archives, installations, performances and texts.
His recent exhibitions and screenings include a.o.
