Mr Alexander Mourant


I'm an artist, educator, writer and Lecturer on BA (Hons) Photography at Kingston School of Art. My practice embraces autobiography, literature and reference-based thinking, to create narratives that question the relationship between the body and the photographic medium. I work with photography, writing, performance and sculpture, employing methodologies cultivated by the 1960s-70s Land Art movement, Performance and Arte Povera, to help question, or push, our understanding of the photographic.

Solo exhibitions include Aomori at The Old Truman Brewery (2018) and Unseen Amsterdam (2018), and recent group exhibitions include To Walk in the Image, Lismore Castle Arts, Ireland (2023), At the Farthest Edge: Rebuilding Photography, NOUA, Norway (2023), A Sudden Vanishing, Seen Fifteen Gallery, London (2023) and with fists, it kicks, it bites, Edel Assanti, London (2020). I am a recipient of grants from Arts Council Norway, Arts Council England and ArtHouse Jersey. I have been commissioned by FT Weekend Magazine, Hapax Magazine and The Greatest Magazine, and included in British Journal of Photography, The Guardian, Photograph, Photoworks, METAL Magazine and Photomonitor. I won the Free Range Award (2017) and was nominated for the Foam Paul Huf Award (2019). 

I have previously taught at Arts University Bournemouth and University of Westminster, as well as working as a curator, artist educator and assistant producer on a wide range of projects for Hayward Gallery, ArtHouse Jersey, BarrowFull, NOUA (Norway), Open Doors Gallery and Wandsworth Council. I am a Member of Revolv Collective and Contributor at C4 Journal. I achieved BA Photography at Falmouth University, and MA Photography at Royal College of Art, London.
