Info 


Alexandra (she/her) is an artist and educator working across performance, photography, moving image and text. Signalling back to her history in dance, her work is centred around the body often adopting choreographic tools and strategies from dance as a means to explore the performativity of image-making. The body as image, representations of womxn in visual culture and neuroscience are on-going areas of interest in her work. 

Her work has been exhibited internationally and in March 2022 she will exhibit her new moving image work 'Plassein' at Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie curated by Iris Sikking.

Selected exhibitions include: Performing Dawns; London & Online, UK (2021), A Performance Affair; Brussels, BG (2019), Vogue Ukraine Art Issue Exhibition; Kyiv, UA (2019), Dancing In Peckham; Peckham 24, London, UK (2019), Stop Motion: In Search of the Still Image [Solo]; Hanes Art Gallery, USA (2019), The Same Tendency; Summerhall, Edinburgh, UK, Visions in the Nunnery, The Nunnery Gallery, London, UK (2018), London Nights; The Museum of London, UK (2018).
