Alexandria Gergiou

I think the most compelling aspect of being an artist is the capacity for imagining and expressing visions through various mediums. I have been fascinated with dreamers – being one myself, dreaming has allowed me to imagine the world in multiple ways. Through drawing, textile processes and experimentation with materials and forms, I challenge myself and move beyond my perceived boundaries. My major artwork, which is underpinned by feminist perspectives, explores gender issues in contemporary society. Through this work I question the impact of sexist attitudes and the traditional gender divide in everyday living. I believe that gender is a socio-political construct and ideally we should be more accepting of the divine masculine and feminine aspects inherent in all of us rather than separating these facets, which create disharmony.
