Alzamora’s practice explores the narrative influence possible through elastic and surreally warped renditions of the human form. Here utilising Gypsum followed by bronze and working at a remarkable life-size scale, ‘Mascochist’ balances realistic depiction with a wildly contorted and re-proportioned figure, hands and feet readily swapped to disorientate and disaffect the viewer. The stress position is offset by a calm, reflective expression typical in Alzamora’s figural sculpture, lending the bodily extension an ambiguity that might be as balletic as injurious.
