“Jane Alexander’s hybrid mutants speak to the porous borders between
humans and other forms of animal life. Alexander acts as a surveyor
mapping the forces, interests, and passions at play in human behavior.
Her sculptures, installations, and photomontages are firmly rooted in
her South African experience. They also transcend their locality,
revealing the disparity felt every day around the world between the
rhetoric of peace and decorum and the human capacity for oppression and
violence. Alexander’s body of work throws into relief the asymmetric
relations and practices that preclude access for so many people to a
free and dignified existence.”
