Alida Kuzemczak-Sayer's practice explores a longstanding interest in systems of communication, the encoding of experience and modes of apprehending the intangible. Through a process-driven approach to making and in response to periods of immersive research, she considers the duality of reading and writing and how the residue of these actions may accumulate or become expanded, contained or translated through material forms. Recent works also address the contemporary relationship to heritage and cultural codes, the linguistic qualities of rhythmically recurring forms and the transformative, yet indexical, nature of the copy.
Kuzemczak-Sayer has undertaken residencies in Seoul, Norfolk, Scuola di Grafica Venice, Sainsbury Centre Norwich, Firstsite Colchester and at Scottish Sculpture Workshop Aberdeenshire, and commissions for Norwich Cathedral and The National Trust. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in the UK, Italy, South Korea and the USA and examples of her work can be found in The Anthony Shaw Collection at York Art Gallery, The Letterform Archive San Francisco and in private collections internationally. Recent projects include; Lucent Property (solo), Anteros, Norwich; In Course, a joint residency and exhibition with Isobel Wohl, Cley-Next-the-Sea/London; and CCCC, Laura Bygrave & Alida Kuzemczak-Sayer, St Peter Hungate, Norwich, selected by OUTPOST Gallery and commissioned by University of East Anglia. She trained at the Royal College of Art (MA Sculpture, 2014) and at Glasgow School of Art (BA Hons Visual Communication, 2009).
