Alexandra Iorgu is an Etobicoke land-based artist who received a rigorous art education in Romania as well as art and education degrees from OCAD U and York U. In her current art practice, she is developing Living Sculptures, a series of site-specific ephemeral sculptures using natural materials and clay. Exhibiting themes of transformation and endurance, the sculptures will deconstruct, eventually disappearing. Her belief in the power of making and creating is often executed in the context of community. Alexandra involves participants in slow artmaking experiences, inspiring them to form connections with the land where they live, before they are invited to explore materials and co-create. She strives to connect communities to nature through art.
