    Alexia Melloris an international, interdisciplinary artist with roots in the UK and USA. Mellor uses humour and performative strategies to investigate issues of security, displacement and identity in an increasingly mediated landscape. She transposes familiar institutions into unfamiliar contexts to initiate direct participation in deconstructing social norms, consumer culture and notions of place. She recently relocated to Newcastle (UK) to pursue a PhD at Newcastle University after having co‑taught an art‑science course in Saudi Arabia and serving as Artist‑in‑Residence in Pontypool, South Wales where she investigated practice‑led research models and regeneration.

    Andrew Y. Ames & Alexia Mellor (WRMC Collaborative). The WRMC Collaborative is a nutrient-rich endeavor delivering high-quality, sweet and savory experiences that infuse the ingredients of humor and play into simple recipes. Through a combination of performance art and game design, WRMC aims to create unexpected alternative ways of experiencing the everyday that invite critical reflection on notions of consumerism, technology and globalization. The artists have been featured in the Providence Journal, the Boston Globe, the Boston Phoenix and ArtDaily as up and coming artists to watch, and have exhibited their work nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include 8 Bits Per Pixel and 55 Soya at MEME Gallery, Cambridge, MA; Pixilerations at Sol Kofler Gallery in Providence; and Mash-Ups at Lake Forest College, IL., USA.
