Alexia Fiasco

Fiasco Alexia

Born in 1990, Alexia Fiasco grew up in Seine-Saint-Denis (Paris banlieue) and studied photography at the Ostkreuzschule Für Fotografie in Berlin in 2013. Engaged on questions pertaining to social justice and convinced of the importance of access to culture for the most precarious people, she currently coordinates the project “Fauvettes” in the working class neighborhood in Pierrefitte-sur-Seine (Paris banlieue). This engagement also strongly influences her video-photographic practice. Driven by the desire to recreate post-colonial archives, she explores topics such as denial and duality, but also the importance of representations in post-colonial diasporas. It is also in this logic that she co-founded the Filles de Blédards collective, which creates exhibitions, reflections, discussions, and celebrations around questions of immigration and its representations.
