Overview

Alexis Blake has a multidisciplinary practice that coalesces visual art, movement and performance. She investigates the way in which the body is represented and treated as an archive, which she then critically examines, disrupts and re-negotiates. Her work directly engages with representations and subjectification of the female body whilst activating it as a site and an agent for socio-political change. In doing so she creates spaces to expose and elude systems of representation and power.

Blake received an MA in Fine Art from Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2007) and was an artist-in-residence at the Delfina Foundation, London (2016), Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2014–15). Her work has been presented at numerous locations, such as: Riga Biennial 2018, BOZAR (Brussels), Performatik19 (Brussels), Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam), British Museum / Block Universe (London), ExtraCity (Antwerp) and La Triennale di Milano XXI (Milan).

Residency Profile

IMMA Invited

June 2019

An invited residency supports Alexis Blake’s performance Anthology of Anger, an ongoing project by Blake exploring how culture, history and DNA influence one’s expression or suppression of anger and empathy, verses the body’s authentic movements of these emotions. Anthology of Anger at IMMA is curated by Poi Marr: Curator, Glasgow International and appears as part of A Vague Anxiety, curated by Seán Kissane, Curator: Exhibitions, IMMA.
