Alexandra is a visual artist based in The Hague,The Netherlands, born and raised in Athens, Greece. She is currently completing her BA in Fine Arts at The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK // 2016-2020).
Alexandra started showing an interest for drawing and painting, but as soon as she was introduced to various mediums her direction changed. She developed a fascination for Video, Installations, Text portrayed in various ways and Character Building. She is working with themes rooted and present in her personal life, ether by facing them daily or being emotionally affected by them. During the Video-making process she takes an active role also in front of the camera, by combining simple performative acts with either a specific site, text or visual reference.
In the videos her Character undergoes transformation in relation to site and geo-political events from Greece to The Netherlands. She has an interest in how power structures shape the world we live in. She adopts numerous roles in the videos that veer between the witness, the outsider, the nomad, the dancer and the joker. She is intrigued by finding various ways of narration, storytelling and ways that drama can be delivered.
Alexandra started actively engaging with the process of art making 5 years ago, and she has ended up having more questions than answers.
