Stefanie Loveday uses abstraction and fragmentation as tools for re-imagining landscapes. Combining fictional geological artifacts with natural and built environments, she creates landscapes that fabricate a new geography composed of natural and constructed terrains. Her most recent work Landfall, Collapse was shot inside an open pit coal mine in the Ruhrgebiet area of Germany. In her work, she uses photography, video and sound to re-interpret the landscape around her, playing with notions of the fictional and concrete.
Originally hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Stefanie Loveday received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and is currently based in Berlin, Germany.
