Alexandra Errington b. 1997 is a Franco/British Visual Artist based in London.
At the heart of my practice is a desire to animate our manufactured environment and explore the disregarded potential of synthetic materials. Through sculpture, I alter the natural order of domestic items and industrial waste, transforming them into enigmatic, organic compositions.
My operations are fuelled by a fascination for evolutionary biology, microbiology, and the organisation of living forms. I am developing a speculative process of dissecting, bending and fusing, that hopes to mimic natural processes and bring intangible notions of growth and symbiosis to a more familiar scale.
I search for images that are liminal, intersections between the man made and the natural, between scales and between meanings. My ambiguous configurations hope to activate our associative thinking, and visually follow how one form, as it were, can emerges from another.
