Alexandra Davenport (she/her) is an artist and educator based in Birmingham, UK.

Her research-led practice considers the complex relationship between the body, knowledge, and representation. Signalling back to her history in dance, she uses choreography, photography, moving image and text to rethink conventional approaches to image-making. Increasingly, her work operates at the intersection of art and science – interweaving diverse forms of knowing through a lens of intersectional feminist discourse.

Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally, in group and solo exhibitions at institutions and festivals such as Derby QUAD (UK), Wilhelm-Hack-Museum (DE), Museum of London (UK), Hanes Art Gallery (USA), Peckham 24 (UK), A Performance Affair (BG), Summerhall (UK) & The Nunnery Gallery (UK).

She studied BA (Hons) Photography at London College of Communication, MA Photography at Royal College of Art and PGCert Creative Education at University for the Creative Arts. She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
