Alexandra Hammond (born in California, U.S.A.) is an artist living and working in Brooklyn. Over the past year, her work has been exhibited in New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Bangkok. She completed her MFA at the School of Visual arts in 2015, winning the 2015 Thesis Award. She also holds a BS in Studio Art from New York University. Hammond positions her art practice as that of an ambivalent utopian. Her work has also been described as “neoromantic”, embracing ‘aesth-ethics’ and storytelling. Her work investigates the relationship between living beings, images and objects as a key lens through which to examine our relationship with multiple systems on earth: ecological, political, social and economic. Hammond is interested both in how we act upon and distribute objects, as well as how objects act upon us as. Her work fosters interactions among images, people and stories, reflecting a conviction that reality is not a fixed collection of facts but a real-time co-creation.
