Alex Colley

War Office

Both my parents are civil servants within the MoD and have been for decades. Their comments and the ideas cemented within the writings of the Marxist theorist and philosopher, Guy Debord were foundational to the work. Debord’s notion of the performance is fundamental to his philosophies. To illustrate this, I repetitively performed with common forms of office equipment, isolated within the white cube. Abstracting myself and the objects, presenting obscure reimagining’s of their functions, humanising the technology and evoking a theatre of psychology. Through images, video, sound and my parents archive, I’ve attempted to explore my own anxieties surrounding Debord’s ideologies, whilst also presenting personal reservations surrounding the stresses, predictability and banality, unavoidable when working within an administrative office environment.
