about

Alexis Parinas is a London-based artist and youth facilitator working predominantly across moving image, painting, sound, and text. Drawing largely from intangible heritage both as a site of discovery and 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 work.

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.
