Alexandra Valy is showing "Safe
as houses II"
Working with light, shadows, projections and a recurrent window/door
motif, Alexandra Valy has been creating atmospheric installations reminiscent
of black and white German expressionist films and the writings of Edgar
Allan Poe. She scratches the emulsion off used 35mm film, exposing
the transparent film which she then projects, creating ‘light
line drawings’ with visible scratch marks. Through this process
she is playing with meditative and evocative effects, attempting to
create a state of mind – or a ‘mind space’.

Alexandra graduates from the Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art.
