Alexandra Grant Bio, Wiki
Alexandra Grant is an American artist based in Los Angeles who uses language and exchanges with writers as a source for imagery in sculpture, painting, drawing, and video.
She did her first solo exhibition at a museum in 2007, organized by curator Alma Ruiz, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). A catalog from the exhibition features her large-scale works on paper, an essay on Grant’s work by Ruiz, and an essay that inspired Grant by Hélène Cixous the French writer and philosopher.
She is known as a ‘radical collaborator’ – the longest of her exchanges being with the pioneering writer of hypertext fiction, Michael Joyce. The paintings and sculpture based on Joyce’s texts (using them as scores or scripts to interpret rather than follow) have been the subject of at least three series: Bodies (shown at Honor Fraser gallery in 2010), the Six Portals (shown at Honor Fraser gallery in 2008), and the Ladder Quartet (shown at MOCA in 2007).
In early 2011, Gerhard Steidl published the Ode to Happiness, her first collaboration with Keanu Reeves. It was Grant’s first artist book and Reeves’ first book as a writer. In 2013, Alexandra collaborated on twin series of exhibitions with Cixous, based on that writer’s book the Philippines.
“Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest” took place first at 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, and at Mains d’Oeuvres in Saint-Ouen, France.1 Hundreds of people joined Grant in creating large-scale drawings of Cixous’s novel, which touched on many themes including telepathy in Cixous, Jacques Derrida, and Sigmund Freud’s work.
In 2013, Alexandra and Cixous spoke about their telepathic relationship as part of a conversation from Mains d’Oeuvres to Nottingham Contemporary in 2016, 18th Street Arts Center published the “Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest” to thank the many participants in the project, a catalog which includes photographs of both exhibitions, and essays by Cixous, Grant, curator Pilar Tompkins Rivas, Robert Nashak, and a transcription of the 2013 conversation with Cixous.
