Cecilia Stenbom was born in Stockholm, Sweden, completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, Finland and a Masters of Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art. She has worked with film, video, installation, photography, drawing and painting to explore notions of identity in a consumer-driven and information-saturated culture. Usually, she mines found material as a means to examine how an overflow of ideas, imagery and information creep into our personal lives. Cecilias work has been exhibited in the UK, Europe and the U.S. Recent projects includes Nobody gets out of here alive, a solo exhibition at Kaapelin Galleria, Helsinki, The Artist Cut, commissioned by Northern Film & Media in association with Channel 4, and North by North East, a film commissioned by the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.
This summer, Cecilia will develop a screenplay for an upcoming film project about survival in the public space and contemporary anxiety. Cecilia has received funding from Arts Council England to make travel to the MAWA Residency Program possible.
