Alice will present a video installation focusing on the critically endangered Mexican axolotl, a water creature with regenerative abilities that refuses to metamorphose into maturity. In charting the connections between the axolotl's post-colonial history, unique - almost unearthly - biology, and recent online popularity as one of the world’s cutest creatures, the work seeks to trace the prevalence of cute imagery in contemporary semiotics.
