Alexandre Singh uses a pair of overhead projectors and a stack of transparencies in the work Assembly Instructions Lecture, An Immodern Romanticism (2009). He juxtaposes the images culled from Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet to construct a chain of interwoven stories and anecdotes. Recounted through documents that blur storytelling, fiction and facts, the artist creates theories, associations and absurd connections supported by 'evidence' that ranges from pop culture references to historical facts.

Alexandre Singh (* 1980, France) is an artist and writer who lives and works in New York.
