Stefanie Gerstmayr finished her MFA in Fine Art in 2018 at Goldsmiths University London. Stefanie's work has been included in exhibitions at Kunstverein Kärnten in Klagenfurt, Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn as well as APT Gallery in London. 2022 she was awarded with the US travelling scholarship by the state of Bavaria.

In her practice Gerstmayr explores the boundaries and transitions between drawing, sculpture and the moving image. She is interested in questions of perception, thinking bodies and feeling spirits/minds/ghosts. Wobbly lines, organic formal elements and abstracted image fragments oscillate between two- and three-dimensionality; they hold the space for ambiguity and spin new, non-linear narratives about the lives of physical beings in an increasingly virtual world.
