Profile

Alix Edwards is a multi-platform artist based in Cardiff, Wales. She combines photography, painting, text, installation and spoken word to give a voice primarily to dis-empowered women. Her work explores untold histories, resilience, loss and shame.

"I focus on everyday ‘stories’; those which do not reach the news or history books. I am currently researching the fate of ‘fallen women’ in late 19th and early 20th Century Wales, with the support of Arts Council of Wales, using a mixture of site visits which I document using photography, archival evidence and accounts which have been passed down verbally or recorded in writing. This has led me to further question which stories we ‘keep’ and which we ‘forget’."

Alix’s work has been exhibited in England and Wales including Artcore Derby, 198 Gallery, g39, Bath Fringe, Bloomsbury Festival, AOTH, Cwtsh Gallery, Cardiff Made, Truman Brewery, Angus Hughes, Oxford House, The Laundry, The Gate, The Russian Club, and in Los Angeles.

Alix has MA in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths, University of London and graduated in MA photography from Central Saint Martin's in 2016.

In 2018 she founded Company of Words open mic and guest events, mentioned in Saboteur Awards 2020, which she hosts in Cardiff, where she lives with her 2 daughters.

She runs community art and creative writing projects for Women’s Aid. She lives in Cardiff with her 2 daughters, and is launching an on-line programme, Creative-Me to empower women through art.
