Maddie Alexander is a Canadian artist practicing in Toronto, Ontario. They began their education at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and completed their BFA in Photography at OCAD University. They have exhibited both locally and internationally, and received the Project 31 Photography Award in 2016. Their practice is multidisciplinary but manifests mainly in moving or still image, text, and installation. Their work combines gesture + language to explore narratives around queer identity, intersectional feminist discourse, and mental illness. They pull imagery from oversaturated media, be it pop culture or porn, and manipulate it to create dialogue around how this imagery shapes and distorts our understanding of queer bodies, identity and sexuality.
