about

Alexis Parinas is a London-based artist and youth facilitator working predominantly across moving image, painting, sound, and text. Drawing largely from intangible cultural heritage – as a site of discovery, and a site through which to interrogate linear, colonial and capitalist modes of epistemology, communication and production – Alexis generally seeks to construct and ‘pass down’ complex and expansive worlds through their practice.

Current areas of research/interest include: intangible cultural heritage of the Philippines, specifically the endurance and transformation of Filipino [food] traditions; folktales, folk-dance and spirit-based rituals; legibility; and folkloric and temporal liminalities.

Alexis has exhibited work at the Barbican Centre, and has just completed their 2020/21 AMPlify artist residency with Wysing Arts Centre.
