Alander Especie, Multidiciplinar Artist

Born in Rio de Janeiro, in the Estácio neighborhood, he lived and spent his childhood, as well as part of his youth, in the northern part of the state in Padre Miguel, Vila Vintem.
Basing himself on his quotidian and his experiences beyond his origin, he poetically constructs his narratives.
    Graduated in Fashion, passing through contemporary art courses at the EAV School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage and goldsmithing by SENAC, in the year of 2012 he made his first individual exhibition in the National History Museum of Rio de Janeiro, with the series “Heirs of Tradition” where he appropriates 5 chairs and armchairs of 5 world renowned Design icons to deconstruct and redefine them. He also signed other exhibitions, such as the Museu da Casa Brasileira with his Migramah Swing seat.
    Through his project “Balanços” characterized by the swing seats, he proposed to the public a rescue of their childhood, using the swing object as relational art, appropriating the ancestral art macramé and resignifying it.
    As for the Neo-concretists, for Alander the public is part of the work and proposes a sensory relationship of an affective experience. With his challenging personality and his attempt to bring life to his installations, the artist invites the viewer to experience the unusual in the common object, from repeated movements that brings the reflection of his own work. At each node of the macramé frame and in the resistance of the material, the barrier of the sculptural object is broken in the technique of repetition, and the action is found. Like a mantra, Alander creates his poetry and brings the form and the materialization of his answering thought.
    In the year 2016 he moved to Israel where he re-discovered himself as a painter, self-expressing gesturally and intuitively. In coexistence with other cultures and religions and influenced by the new way of thinking, reading, writing and especially listening, the artist thoroughly investigates the Hebrew alphabet, where he resumes his research, this time in the field of pictorial art, reusing materials, using different techniques, mixing shapes and appropriating the alphabet to create a new language.
