Biography

Alexandra Roussopoulos was born in 1969 in Paris, of Swiss and Greek nationality. Through painting, she examines the mental and physical space in which she finds herself and raises questions about the relationships between forms, colours, and space. Her work has always emphasised the importance of connection to others. She regularly collaborates on artistic projects and has participated in numerous artist residencies in China, Greece, Ireland, Belgium, Slovenia, Croatia, and Algeria.

She has been involved in the activities of the APDV art center, which places artistic action at the heart of low-income housing areas. She has organised and curated several exhibitions: “L’ Eau et les Rêves” at the Kamchatka gallery in 2007 in Paris, “Mauvais Genre” in 2009 in collaboration with Isabel Duperray at the Petit Maroc gallery in St-Nazaire, and “Young Memories” in 2015-2016, a series of nine exhibitions, at the Episodic Gallery in Paris.
