Alex Thebez is an Indonesian lens based artist, who is currently living in New York. Alex is fascinated by technology and its capacity to create and distribute visual imagery at a massive scale. Alex creates work that explores ideas of discomfort and disconnect. In his work, Alex is primarily concerned with images (both moving and still) and their ability to translate difficult emotions and contradictions surrounding themes of sexuality, national identity, home, and Indonesian diaspora.
Alex also runs TAGTAGTAG, an independent journal of creativity, alongside his frequent collaborator, Elizabeth Renstrom.
