Meet the on-line Artist // Alicia Savage

 Alicia Savage is an artist originally from Boston, Massachusetts in the United States. Her work explores social constructions of adulthood and care from the perspective of an only child (singleton) through photography, performance, poetry and installation.

Her project “Only Child” is nine photographs, contemplating her final position in her family’s cycle of life – the anticipated loss, responsibility of care, and contemplation of single motherhood. Her extended investigations deal with large ideas tied to the relationship of family and independence, from her perspective as a female singleton adult  living in the US. In a contemporary society that celebrates the individual and promises prosperity, her work aims to observe the experience between the opposing tensions of individual actualization, inherited identity and care structures.
