Alexandra Rozenman

Artist's Statement

My work expresses longing for understanding and being understood, for non-belonging and finding a place to be. Playfulness in my work points to instability of life – visually, culturally and literally. I am working playing on the conflicts between identity and assimilation, tradition and modernity.

Using recognizable sets from popular tales, places and paintings as my environments - I create a world of visual stories. I often am a non-fictional character in my work along with my fictional cast that I invent or find on my way. That creates a net of two-sided stories: my approach to being who I am in this world and my ways of telling this as a story.
Story, which communicates with art and history, illustrates psychology and challenges criticism.
