THE BATTLE DAYS
Curated by Marine CornueT
The exploration and representation of cultural identities, the attachment to childhood totems, and the use of semiotics are at the core of some of Sewell's recent works, exhibited in the PlusSpace. Alex Sewell's work is largely informed by his personal narrative, and partly reflects the culture and customs of his youth.
