Alexandra Hunts (UA/NL)
Art Hub Residency (Resident, 2019)
Alexandra Hunts is an Ukrainian artist based in Amsterdam. She holds a BFA from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (2012) and a MFA from Malmö Art Academy (2018).
Hunts works with photography, installation, and sculpture as her main mediums and is interested in experimenting with material as philosophy. The format of her work depends on the conceptual frame, meaning it is always rooted in research that spans across disciplines such as art, science, history, and critical theory.
As part of Art Hub Copenhagen’s thematic Studio Program 2019, Life in the Future of Science and Technology, Hunts researched quantum physics and the concept of wave-particle duality together with professor Charles M. Marcus from the Nils Bohr Institute. In this research, Hunts touched on the existence of borders and void in the oversaturated digital information society. The project examined themes of connection and disconnection, chaos versus simplicity, and identity versus multi-identity.
Alexandra has previously been a FOAM Talent and nominated awards like Rudin Prize, ING Talent Award, Somfy Photography Award.
