Stefania Strouza’s practice explores how cultural narratives of diverse epochs connect to produce new identity projects. It examines the spatial mobility of such narratives, the exchange of forms and symbols across large distances, and the cross-cultural syncretisms that emerge from it. The artist materializes these ideas through sculptural works and installations that draw associations between the symbolic world of objects and notions of temporality, geography and the body.
Stefania Strouza has exhibited work at The Industrial Art Biennial, Croatia; NEON, Greece; and Neue Galerie Innsbruck, Austria, among others.stefaniastrouza.com
