Alexis Neider

Using domestic tropes and feminist theory, my practice examines conventional forms in new ways--often by mis-using objects (for example, by stepping in cake). Through re-encoding the familiar, household articles become vehicles for both embracing and subverting assigned spheres. By reframing sweets, textiles, and other objects as graceful yet defiant, I invite viewers to complicate notions of femininity, contemplate more nuanced meanings, and find humor and beauty in the mis-use of objects.
