Lexi works in a variety of mediums as an artist but some of her most arresting work has seen her working with bread, manipulating it into beautiful sculptures. She is a New Yorker through and through, but her work has much to say about 'cultural anthropology with bread as the lens'. She has recently traveled to India to explore 'the women...and what sacrifices they've had to make to maintain tradition'. Her work into understanding the changing relationship between tradition and modernity is something alongside her edible bread exhibitions invite us to question our own relationships to bread as a launchpad onto issues concerning societal and personal consumption.
Lexi wrote us a recipe for the pictured loaf - perhaps the most captivating I've ever read. Enjoy the rhythm and 'submit your body to the role of tool without feeling undignified'.
