Event Details

Alix Edwards is a writer, photographer and artist whose work  explores the themes of marginalisation, domestic violence, motherhood and resilience. She facilitates workshops, undertakes commissions in photography and painting and runs her own open Mic and Guest event Company of Words in Cardiff City Centre.

Her work focuses on bringing statistics to life and these vibrant paintings, called Foetus Flowers, inspired by Helen Chadwick’s Piss Flowers, tell the story of those women who, unmarried and pregnant in the 18th to late 20th Century were forced to give up their babies and put to work washing sheets in prison-like conditions in ‘institutions known as Magdalene laundries.

Current projects by this artist include instagram series 104 Locks which mourns the 2 women killed every week by domestic violence in England and Wales, Outside-In a photographic series which questions women and relationships in the 21st Century and novel about the maid versus the mafia entitled Nada.
