A Performance By Alexandra Ross
In To Tell the Whole Truth, Alexandra Ross explores themes of fragmentation, destruction, and permanence, bringing the audience into her personal narrative with the primal act of giving.
About the Artist
Alexandra Ross creates multimedia installations based around her experience being raised by parents whose isolationism, commitment to unschooling, and frequent moves created a life experience of disruption and survival. Now based in rural Manitoba, her work explores themes of personal chaos and emergent internal order within that chaos. Her installations include work in clay, print and photography as well as assemblage sculptures containing found objects interacting with each medium. Since arriving in Canada she has obtained her BFA at the University of Manitoba’s School of Art (2020). Alexandra mounted her first solo exhibition at the Steinbach Cultural Arts Centre (2015) and has since participated in a number of group shows in Winnipeg as well as a print exchange in Grand Forks (2019). Alexandra was awarded the Undergraduate Research Award (2018) under professor Grace Nickel as well as two UMSU scholarships. Currently she is completing a year long placement in the Rural Artist Mentorship Program through Manitoba Arts Network and Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art.
