Swedish artist based in Stockholm
Alexandra Karpilovski, born in 1988 in Kiev, Ukraine, is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm, Sweden, and Bergamo, Italy. She graduated from Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, and is now working as a multi-disciplinary artist whose work ranges from miniature sculptures to large scale installations, performances, texts, and paintings. With both massive and small-scale pieces, she creates spaces with a focus on the inner and the cultural conditioning it involves. With returning symbols that represent emotions rather than subject, Alexandra focuses on moods and feelings, continuously working without excuses, moving freely and never standing still. As part of the performance duo Karpilovski + LVM, Alexandra transforms her poems and texts into moving images and sound installations which build a loud and sharp contrast to her more sensitive paintings. She is also part of the duo Atlas Television with Duda Bebek, and works with illustrations, commission works, as well as event and exhibition curation, such as So Long St Salong, PLX Tjärö and Atlasgruppens tårar.
