Alexandra Grant is a Los Angeles-and Berlin-based visual artist whose work explores issues around communication across languages, literary traditions, and cultures. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries globally and she is represented by Miles McEnery Gallery in New York and carlier | gebauer in Berlin and Madrid. Grant's first collaboration with Hélène Cixous, in 2013 was a two-city exhibition and participatory drawing project called Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest at Mains d'Oeuvres in Saint Ouen, France and 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, CA.

Hélène Cixous is a multi-hyphenate French writer, philosopher, and playwright born in Oran, Algeria, whose writing, since 1969's Dedans (Inside), has pushed against literary genres. As an academic, Cixous co-founded Paris University VIII in 1969 and founded the first Women's Studies program in Europe. She has collaborated extensively with visual artists as well as contemplated their work in her writing. Cixous gave an early manuscript of her 2022 work Mdeilmm to Grant as the basis or inspiration for the Itinéraires Fantômes deck and exhibition.
