Alexandra Lerman is an artist based in New York and Saint Petersburg.
Her work interrogates systems governing the post-industrial landscape of immaterial labor through photography, sculpture, video, and performance. Her practice is thematically rooted in historical moments wherein natural ecosystems, language, bodily gesture, and expressive freedom come into conflict with corporate and governmental systems of control - such as agricultural and technical innovations, copyright law, and the built environment.
Lerman's work has been shown at Sculpture Center, Tina Kim Gallery, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Anthology Film Archives, Artists Space, Drawing Center, The Whitney Museum, and the New Museum in New York; Signal Center, Malmö in Sweden; and the State Russian Museum, and the Museum of Hygiene in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Lerman took part in the LMCC Workspace Program, Open Sessions Residency at the Drawing Center, LabVERDE residency in Manaus, Brazil, and Banff's A Position of DOCUMENTA (13), Alberta, Canada.
