Alessandra Sormani


Alessandra Sormani is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in London and Bristol.

Her practice includes photography, video and performance. Although trained as a professional photographer, she often uses amateur digital media, making and distributing projects through mobile technology and social networks. Her work examines the way these technologies distort the boundaries between the private and public spheres and between real events and fiction.

Alessandra Sormani uses recording devices as a gateway to atmospheres, interacting with the machine, turning into a ritual that corrupts the flow of time and space.

She was born in Bristol and studied at Central Saint Martin’s and Chelsea College of Art in London.
