...is a non-disciplined artist who has been known to publish words and images, perform dazzling feats of social engineering with participatory art actions and paint elaborate landscapes with her words. She has also been known to rock the mic.
Active in the Montreal arts scene since her arrival from Geneva in '97, Alexis has kept busy, dividing her time between three parallel artistic pursuits: spoken word, sound art and live action art. She ran the Montreal Poetry Slam for three years. She has performed in 35 cities across North America. In 1999, she came in 9th place out of 250 poets at the 10th Annual National Poetry Slam in Chicago.
Since then she has been focusing on her art rock, in the noise band Jimmy Brain and solo. Assisted by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, Alexis recently released a full length CD on the Montreal indie label, Grenadine Records. In the spring of 2003, Alexis is touring Canada and the US in support of In Abulia, a quirky mix of songs, stories and soundscapes.
