Alice Anderson, Artist

Materials used are copper thread and doll hair.

"French-Algerian artist Alice Anderson’s compelling artwork and installations are tactile, complex, and evince a delicate beauty. As a painfully anxious child who struggled to speak, Anderson found relief in ritualistic activities -- namely winding fibers (from her clothing as well as her own hair) around objects. It’s a thread, quite literally, that runs throughout her work."
