Artist ( Description ): 

Stine Deja’s practice explores the sticky in-between of real and virtual worlds with a striking arsenal of media that includes 3D animation, immersive installation, moving image, and digital surrogates. In Deja’s simulated spaces, uncanny avatars hinge between what’s strange and familiar, seducing us with not quite-real products informed equally by the artist’s simultaneous fascination and revulsion with our hyper-commercialized contemporary culture.
Concealed beneath a sleek surface, multiple layers of social critique meld with absurdist aesthetics and tragicomic narratives to create a cybernetic landscape of fantasy and desire. At the heart of all of Deja’s projects is a keen interest in how these heightened emotional states, often coaxed out by late capitalist narratives of self-care and guilt-free indulgence, are displaced onto the body.

Stine Deja was born in Denmark in 1986 and currently lives and works in London. She received her MA in Visual Communication (Moving Image) from the Royal College of Art in 2015 and her BA in Interaction Design from Kolding School of Design in 2012.

Since 2017, her work has been represented by Annka Kultys Gallery. The artist has had three gallery solo exhibitions, including CYPHORIA, a virtual travel agency that explored the techno-social phenomenon of living concurrently outside/inside the machine, then There is Life Outside intended as an exposé of our increasingly artificial world. More recently, Deja has also collaborated with the artist Marie Munk on the exhibition Synthetic Seduction examining synthesised intimacy. 

A select exhibition history of the artist includes shows at: HeK Museum, Basel, Switzerland (forthcoming June 2020), Somerset House, London, UK (2020); MdbK, Leipzig, Germany (2019);  Tranen, Gentofte, DK (2019); Schimmel Project, Dresden, Germany (2018); Annka Kultys Gallery, London, UK (2018) ; SixtyEight Art Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark (2018); Annka Kultys Gallery, London, UK (2017); Assembly Point, London, UK (2016); Concrete Lab, Copenhagen; Remisen, Copenhagen; Bargehouse, London; Hockney Gallery, London; Fringe Film Festival, London; Dansk Kvindesamfund, Copenhagen.
