Alexandra Dementieva
* 1960, currently based: Brussels, Belgium
Lives and works in Brussels

My main interests focus on social psychology and perception and their application in multimedia interactive installations.
These projects attempt to widen the mind's potential for perception using different production materials: computers, video projections, soundtracks, slides, photography, etc. By making certain historical, cultural and political allusions, my exhibition locations create the frame within which the idea develops. The projects explore the spectator’s depths of perceptual experience and the interaction of the individual spectator with the exhibition as well as with other visitors. The subject of an installation or its production method becomes less important to me than the mind of the user. Thus the latter becomes the center of the project or the main actor in the performance.
