With a focus on women's agency on screen, Alexa Seligman's work interrogates and reimagines the status quo. Her art explores themes of feminism, social justice and the natural world including mothering; intimacy and attachment; the capitalist and patriarchal medicalisation of women's bodies; and our evolving place in nature.
Alexa began to focus her practice as an artist following the birth of her child in 2016. Undertaking an Artist Residency in Motherhood,  'The Artist Mother, an Exquisite Corpse' is a collaboration with writer Line Langebek, presented at the University of Westminster in October 2016 (accompanied by a 7 week babe in arms - thankfully it is possible to breastfeed whilst operating Premiere Pro). Her next moving image piece 'Nude' (2018) is made in partnership with composer Donna McKevitt and premiered at Mayfair Art Weekend. 'HERA' (202), with architect and curator Lily Jencks (and her voluminous, super-fluid design, Powis Cloud) premiered at the London Short Film Festival in 2022.
Also a film producer, Alexa founded Heliotrope Screen Media, producing a number of UK and international feature films as well as artist moving image work. Prior to that she co-founded The Electric Shadow Company and experiences of life behind the camera and of women's portrayal on the big screen have greatly informed her artist practice and her interest in exploring women's agency on-screen across a variety of media. In 2023 she co-founded Bridges to Breastfeeding, a Community Interest Company specialising in creating and promoting clear and informative video information about breastfeeding. These vital strands of her existence continue to inform each in new and exciting ways.
