A Warm Bath with…

is an in-depth series where a performance artist gets the stage, a warm bath and a surprise! This first edition is with multi artist Alex Covert.

Alex Covert is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist originally from the United States and based in Amsterdam.

Her current focus is on the intersection between painting and performance. Her work explores the power of vulnerability as she attempts to shed her conditioned layers to discover her authentic self.

Alex spent years leaning into her conditioning, convincing herself that she was not an artist, and working as a lawyer in New York. It wasn’t until August 2021, after many years spent supporting other artists as both a lawyer and performer, that she first dared to show her own creative work.

Alex’s performances are about taking off masks – there is no makeup, no costume, no role to play, and no choreography. She bares herself completely, showing the audience her soul, her creative process, and her unfiltered form. What scares her most each time she steps on stage is the idea that, since she does not prepare any choreography, she will forget how to create under the scrupulous gaze of the audience. So far though, the magic flows, and she has been able to welcome the challenges as they arrive.
