Alice Anderson (b. 1976, lives and works in London) works in film, drawing and sculpture, playing with the dislocation of time as children construct parallel worlds. Her work is a compulsive and obsessive production through which she explores and gives shape to her childhood memories. Anderson’s work has been shown at institutions such as Tate Modern (London), Centre Pompidou (Paris), and Grand Palais (Paris). Recently she had a series of simultaneous solo exhibitions at the Picasso Museum, FRAC-PACA, and at the Marc Chagall National Museum, where she set up more than 3,000 meters of red hair to traverse the entirety of each museum in a gigantic installation called Rapunzel.
