Alexandra Ewerth

“ I am a process-based worker and approach work as an ongoing experiment. The indeterminacy of it’s outcome is part of the excitement and challenge that drives me.”

Alex works across a wide range of media including video, photography, sound and installation. Painting, often combined with photographic images is her preferred medium.
For the last two years she has been working on the theme of visual music in a collaborative project with professional pianists. She used a trash piano and self built instruments as painting tools which added yet another dimension to her work.
As a process based worker, her aim is not to create a piece separate and closed but to bring the spectators attention to the process of the work as much as on the piece itself.
