" I see within dialogue a central point to the reconstruction of meaning within contemporary culture and society.

 

The foundations of development stand in the conscious sensibility to perceive the unity between the natural and the humane, removing the barriers of the instinctual, to preserve and reinstall sacredness in a cyclical perspective on life. "

Alexandra Von Fuerst is a visual artist raising awareness on the interconnection between the human body and nature, applying a feminine perspective to address acceptance on the taboos of contemporary social culture.

 

Born in 1992 from a Slovak mother and Italian father, Alexandra grew up in Italy, graduating at the University of Communication and Design IED in Milano in 2014. 

At the end of her studies she dedicated extensive time travelling and researching in various sites across the world, learning about diverse cultures and perspectives on living and psychosomatic healing. Following her experience as creative director and photographer within the fashion industry, Alexandra is currently invested in an artistic process promoting transparent material sourcing, supporting female empowerment and the preservation of environmental biodiversity through a focus on nutritional ethics.

 

The interest in the elevation of the "imperfect" and the awareness towards a sustainable development of society are at the core of her research and artworks, encouraging the understanding, respect and celebration of nature as essence and living principle within each form of being.

 

Alexandra is based in Paris.
