Alexis McGrigg has been awarded the Rural Performance Production Lab Artist Residency at the Mississippi Center for Cultural Production (Sipp Culture), US.

As part of the residency, taking place from July 10 — 30, 2023, the artist received a grant to produce a short film and installation centered around her family’s ancestral ties, entitled 'Alterity: Unknown Histories'.

'I’m interested in how relatives in my family, whom I’ve never had the opportunity to know, are still tied to me physically and spiritually through the land that surrounds us, and through the psychological trauma that has been passed down from generation to generation.'

— Alexis McGrigg
