Alexandra Haeseker is an artist and lecturer at the Alberta College of Art and Design. Born in the Netherlands, Haeseker is an internationally recognized artist working largely in print media. In her Survivors series, Haeseker continues her exploration of the isolation of the human figure.

This exhibition was curated by Ania Sleczkowska, founding director of the Foundation.
