 ~rom Sarah Winchester Made Me Hardcore, Printedition by Alex Hetherington
Alex Hetheringtons practiceis rooted rmly within the milieu o contemporary late capitalist culture.Known primarily or hisperormative video works exploring notionso identity and sel through complexappropriations and reerences to theatre,literature, visual art, mass media and spamemails.
Levez Vos Skinny Fists Comme  Antennas To Heaven
marks a new step orHetherington in an installation in whichperormance is hinted at but ultimately denied.A dead set in the best possible way.Conceived by Hetherington as :
a result of a dramatictreatment or scriptedscenario basedon the idea of theGerman artist IsaGenzken listening tothe Canadian bandGodspeed! You BlackEmperor and devising works formed fromher response to theseaudio works.
A violent remix o the world,pulling in aspects o queer culture, high art,mass production and the prolieration o the image. Te resultant work acts in some way as a spatial representation o the ragmentedsel.
Does a society thatencourages thesearch for the realself make us ‘aware of our essential separateunique identity’ ordoes it afford uspractice in the actingout of Siamesedidentities?
 ~Hillel Schwartz - Te culture o the Copy p.84
In this quote we nd the root o the problematic logic that lies at the hearto Hetheringtons practice. At once we aretold that to be ‘original’ and ‘real’ is the goalo our society however this task purely seeksto underline the contradictions o a post-romantic landscape.In a society in which individuationis presented as the oundation o meaningHetherington creates an inversion denyingthe sel and making open the process o theconstruction o identity.
 We know of nopeople withoutnames, no languagesor cultures in whichsome manner of distinctions betweenself and other,
 
we andthey, are not made .. . Self-knowledge –always a constructionno matter how muchit feels like a discovery – is never altogetherseparable from claims
to be known in specifc
 ways by others.
 ~Manuel Castells - Te Power o Identity 
 Te construction o identity isat best a ragile process in which we takerom the extant signiers, an accretion o reerencesIs this not the root o allperormance?A mask denying the inner sel andprojecting an idealised representation?Art shares the same ate, attemptingto break out o itsel but undamentally dead.Only possible o a muterepresentation.
