Alex Wickenden: Routine W.A.S.P

15 - 20 August 2014

Preview: Thursday 14 August / 6 - 8pm


A student of Photography and Video Art at the University of Bedfordshire, Alex Wickenden presents experimental works which explore social notions of the male gender identity.


Routine W.A.S.P. is a combined display of two separate works The Morning Routine of The Male Drag King and W.A.S.P.’s Ocelli. The two pieces simultaneously carry a parodic nature - Morning Routine being an exaggerated series of photographs of a stereotypically ‘non-macho’ male, engaging in overtly masculine scenarios, and W.A.S.P.’s Ocelli  a video project culminating from the result of research into the rise of ‘lad culture’ and its potentially negative effect on a wider community.
