Alexandre Erre was born and raised in french Polynesian island, New-Caledonia. He is now a Paris based visual artist working with installation, sculpture and photography. Most of his research revolves around the suspended construction site as being the playground for endless possibilities. His work is closely tied to his birthplace, New-Caledonia, through its past as being a penal colony, the post colonialism processing and the queer community struggle. He is digesting these challenging themes by means of sculptures and installations mostly, where the reappropriation of raw materials and building techniques convey his own perception and reflections. His work bring in for questioning facts that we long stop asking ourselves about the nature of the spaces we live in and it challenges the history of his country and the path its taking toward independency.
