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

To align with a sensitive and sustainable development of understanding, it appears fundamental to nurture a vision that elevates through creation and simultaneously provides a return to human and environmental health.

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 using the medium of photography to raise 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 her time travelling and researching in various sites across the world, learning about diverse cultures and perspectives on living and psychosomatic healing. Beginning her career within the fashion industry, Alexandra’s interest lies on shifting the creative business process into collaboration’s supporting long term sustainability through the primary use of organic, renewable and compostable materials and providing empowerment to the environment and the people involved.

 

The creative process at the basis of her work synthesises personal studies on Kundalini Yoga, Ayurveda and sacred plant medicine to create using nature as source and tool, encouraging the understanding and celebration of the living principle within each form of being.

 

Alexandra is based in Paris, France.
