Bio

Stacie Ant is a Russian/Canadian new media artist and curator.
Currently based in Berlin, her ongoing journey as an eternal ex-patriot and an immigrant fuel her output of grotesque views of the world. Using video, installation, and performance, Ant reinvents elements of contemporary culture through fictional, maximalist narratives. She often incorporates costumes, exaggerated makeup, composited scenery and 3D animation to ridicule the effects that mass reliance on technology has on popular culture.
Ant’s work integrates washed-up celebrities, glamorized mid-century inspired environments, and gender fluid characters. Often humorous, Ant’s work offers a way of looking at a fast-paced digital realm through a lens of irony and satire.
