ALEXI WILLIAMS WYNN (1972 GB)  is a British sculptor whose practise explores the nature of her own corporeality through an exploration into the hidden nature of the body’s makeup. Working directly from the cadavers of animals she employs various casting techniques including corrosion casting, a method of giving form to the formless spaces within the body, an inversion of a life immortalized in death. The results of these processes become sculptural possibilities that get transformed into a poetic visual language. The complex relations between life and death, value with nonvalue, and the dialectic inherent in beauty are some of her lines of enquiry. She draws inspiration from art history, mythology, literature, as well as everyday reality.
