Bio
Alexandra Zierle and Paul Carter's collaborative work is Interdisciplinary, multi-sensory and often site/context responsive, spanning performance, happenings and interventions, sound, video and installation. Through their collaborative practice, Zierle & Carter critically examine different modes of communication and what it means to be human, addressing notions of belonging, dynamics within relationships, and the transformation of limitations. Their work sites an embodied investigation into human interactions and encounters, acting as an invitation to venture into the spaces in-between the external and internal, permanent and transient, spoken and unheard. The work fundamentally explores society’s conventions, traditions, and rituals, often flipping them on their head, reversing orders, and disrupting the norm.

Shifting in format, content and duration, their performance works vary in length, from a series of short actions to three days durational works, a week long intensive to bodies of work that span a year. At times publicly visible and others remote and discreet, their site-specific work has occupied galleries, explored one to one interactive and instruction based performances in cupboards and empty cinemas. They have created performance for camera works on snow covered mountain plateaus and at the edge of cliffs, a series of actions and interactions in busy shopping areas, baroque gardens and city parks, made process-led works in libraries, woodlands, tunnels and World War 2 bunkers, as well as working nomadically with interventions in wilderness such as on the top of a volcano, at the base of a glacier, in a hot spring or in deserts.
