Alexandra Davenport

Alexandra 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.
