Alex

Alex

Alex Bleecker (based in Seattle) is a nonstop car accident happening inside the gall bladder of a newborn American Quarter horse. Just kidding – horses don’t have gallbladders. They’re trickle feeders. As a Made at Hugo House fellow for 2014-15, Alex is currently working on a project wherein he is responding to the beautiful, haunting, surreal inquiries that Pablo Neruda’s makes in the Book of Questions (1974) – his final utterances. He’ll share some of those responses tonight.
