Her entire work is inspired by her fascination with people. Human diversity is the basis for her art, in which people are liberated to reveal their deepest self. Aleksandra sees her art as a platform of expression for others and herself; a platform that empowers us all. So far, 500 participants have been involved in her work. She also often uses herself as a subject of her art. This immersion in the stories of strangers serves to show other perspectives, and to discover how society can be reconsidered to benefit every single human. Her goal is to manifest a less polarised world where everyone is tolerated for who they really are. She is mainly focused on identity, sexuality, consciousness, body, freedom and rituals.
