Balcony - Loose Ends

  • 6 July — 5 November 2016 *on now

As with many other important things in life, beauty pops out at you when you least expect it. In the pursuit of blurring the boundaries between our stereotypes of beauty and the multifaceted, unpredictable harmony of our everyday reality, Alessia has chased glimpses of perfection within unfinished journeys, irrelevant details and misfit attributes. Deliberately distant from famous landmarks and popular places, her work aims to picture a larger narrative that captures the compelling complexity of the ordinary.

Suitable for

  • Any age
