Berlin-based artist Alexandra Leykauf appropriates the gender-oriented or feminine cultural gaze via the medium of photography, playing with varying degrees of appropriation in order to reveal the superficiality of images. She often deconstructs different aspects of photography and cinema, in turn exposing the complexity inherent to the construction of images. This book presents an overview of Leykauf’s practice through three exhibitions – Both Sides Now (2020), Animus (2021), What We Do in the Shadows (2022) – her series ‘Stick People’ and ‘Faces’, and a number of video works. Texts by the artist and Garance Chabert illuminate the connections between these works.
