Research

Alexe’s research is practice based. Her practice centres on the relationship between place, history and mythology, investigated through photography, print, sculpture and site-specific interventions. Recent work has explored both the physical and mythological resonances within remote rural landscapes. She makes associations between the ‘place’, the associated narrative or ritual using the most appropriate medium with which to explore this.
