Infest Collection

Alexandra looks for the beauty in all things that scuttle and soar. Her fascination for insects materialises in the stillness that is embroidery and beadwork. While insects may be fleeting creatures, they have been a source of inspiration to makers for centuries. For ‘Infest’ Alexandra examines the diverse range of colours and textures in beetles and deconstructs them, exhibiting the process of infestation and deterioration.
