XAVIERA SIMMONS’S body of work spans photography, performance, video, sound, sculpture, and installation. She defines her studio practice as rooted in ongoing investigation of experience, memory, abstraction, present and future histories, specifically concentrating on shifting notions surrounding landscape, character development, and formal processes. Simmons is committed equally to the examination of different artistic modes and processes, dedicating part of a year to photography, another part to performance, and other parts to installation, video, and sound works, thereby keeping her practice in constant and consistent rotation, shift, and engagement.
