Alice Anderson:

Alice Anderson (b. 1972, UK) lives and works in London. Studied Fine Art at Goldsmith's College. Anderson's drawings, like her scupltures, are the result of ritual performances and are influenced by where they are made. The actions typically combine primitive and modern ritual repetition. The performative drawings are part of her main body of work that explores memory in the context of the digital world.  Select solo exhibitions include Alice Anderson, Permanent Sculptures, Eiffel Historical Building (2016), Alice Anderson: Data Space, Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris (2015); Alice Anderson: Memory Movement Memory Objects, Wellcome Collection, London (2014); Travelling Studio, Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (2012); and Alice Anderson’s Rituals, Freud Museum, London, (2011).
