Alexis Dahan “Interstice” exhibition at LAMB ARTS, London

“I am not interested in what potholes and cobblestones tell us historically or sociologically. What interests me is how the past manifests itself in the current form of modern cities. I am particularly interested in the potholes because they physically contain successive periods of time in only one phenomenon. I represent signs of urban erosion through my artworks because I believe cities have become our natural habitat, with its own natural cycles and sedimentary rhythm. Furthermore, my artworks highlight the interstice in an attempt to give this “non-space” a status as object in itself.” – Alexis Dahan
