Alexandra Uppman is an interdisciplinary artist whose work gravitates around a number of different domains and interests. Having been born in Luxembourg from Swedish-speaking Finnish parents and being confronted with a lot of different cultures and nationalities, she has worked the concept Heimat in various ways. Another major influence has been the metal music scene, its live atmosphere and underground milieus. These two universes are represented along with other historical or contemporary influences.
She works with a number of techniques in different kinds of installations, with the primary technique being drawing.
She is currently working on her personal projects in her atelier at the Annexes of the Bourglinster Castle in Luxembourg. During the sanitary crisis at this time she is working in the Belgian countryside.
She is a member of AAPL (Association des Artistes Plasticiens du Luxembourg).
