Artist Statement

Alexis Bulman is an interdisciplinary artist based in Epekwitk’/ Prince Edward Island. Her performance, sculpture, and installation work draws on community and collaboration to explore themes of wonderment, care, and access in public and private spaces. The artist’s investigations are achieved through deep engagements with materials and process. From illuminated floating tents to chopped and fallen lumber, fiberglass amusement park artifacts to sprinkled sidewalk salt and more. Bulman uses materials as sites for sharp and playful intervention, relying on the instincts of her own body to inform her conversations with site-specific places and movement.


Bulman completed her BFA at NSCAD University in 2013 and has exhibited nationally in galleries such as Eyelevel Gallery, NS, The Confederation Centre Art Gallery, PEI, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, ON and internationally at the Kelvin Gallery, Glasgow School of Art, Scotland, UK. Recently, Bulman was a planning committee member for the inaugural Disability Atlantic Arts Symposium. Currently, Bulman works as the Program Director of the Gallery at the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation with the University of Prince Edward Island where she works to disseminate community-engaged artwork about Climate Change adaptation through a continued accessibility framework.
