Alessandra Abballe is a lens-based settler artist currently living and working in Tkaronto/Toronto, the traditional and ancestral territory of the Anishinaabe, including Mississaugas of the Credit, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples. Their work explores notions of identity and belonging, specifically in relation to queer and feminist perspectives, and often investigates hegemonic structures through the process of research and making. While rooted in photographic practices, Abballe's work often includes archival and vernacular imagery, video, text, textiles, and needlework. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography Studies from Toronto Metropolitan University's School of Image Arts (2018) and is currently an MFA, Visual Arts candidate at York University (2025).
