Alexa Wright is a visual artist based in London, UK. Her practice spans a range of media, including photography, video, sound, interactive installation and book works. She has worked at the intersection of art and medical science since the mid-1990s, when she became known for her award-winning photographs of people with phantom limbs, After Image. Alexa’s projects usually require a long period of research, often involving collaborations with people with disabilities, poor mental health or specific medical conditions. Her artworks address questions of human identity and otherness, and also aim to raise public awareness of some of the issues that surround physical and mental difference.
