Alexis Zelda Stevens

Bio: I make sculpture, installation, images and dance. The work has concerns with the body, psychology, interactions, liveness, slippery signs and symbols. I’m interested in what structures us in relation to others and the world, why we do what we do, and how it is embodied and expressed.

A series of images showing a small sculpture, made to fit round a finger. A combination of the object being participated with by a person, and images of it on its own.

Photographing A Participatory Sculpture

A Giff. One hand has a small sculpture over the finger, the other presses on it as if the sculpture is a bandage and they have cut their finger. THe hands change position slightly n each picture of the giff. 
The sculpture has a grey granite finish.

Sculpture for Remembering the Feeling of Time You Cut Your Finger Because Your Mind Was Elsewhere

A visual description of the material qualities of an artwork. Various images showing surfaces and materials, alongside the following text: 
'A linear structure composed of triangles and half formed squares, hangs loose into the room having come away from its fixings by the wall. It looks heavy, stony. Draped over it are white-ish shapes, Jesmonite or plaster- some teeth, an outline of some keys…'

Between Places

A grey floor with a white wall. The the centre leaning, sliding, flopping down the wall is an abstract foam shape- irregular and organic. in front of it is a set of teeth in green foam, backed on polstyrene to give it more form in space.
