Stefanie Loveday is a Swiss-Canadian visual and media artist. Her works combine photography, video and sound to re-interpret the human-altered landscape. Exploring conjunctions between simulated and real environments, she combines fictional geological artifacts with natural and constructed terrains. These new territories question our perception of landscape and point at sociological, environmental and political conflicts. She performs in the electro-acoustic duo “Sage Thrashers” using found objects and electronic devices. Stefanie Loveday obtained her Bachelor of Media Arts from Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada and her Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, USA. She received several grants and awards (Canada Council for the Arts, The Leon and Thea Koerner Award in Fine and Performing Arts) and artist residencies (Goethe Institut Macedonia, Programa Red de Residencies Artísticas LOCAL Colombia, AADK Spain). She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
