ABOUT

Åsa Stjerna is a Swedish installation   artist, who uses sound and listening as her artistic media of exploration.

Through her site-specific  sound installations, she explores the often hidden underlying historic, social,  political and poetic phenomena connected to a place, making these perceivable. She is currently involved with several public art projects dealing with the  articulation of urban spaces through sound and listening. Stjerna has participated in a number of exhibitions in Sweden and internationally. Her  works and exhibitions include a permanent sound installation at the Sahlgrenska university hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden commissioned by Västra Götalandsregionens konstenhet (2017); Swedish Institute in Paris commissioned by the Public Art Agency Swedeny (2014); the Transmediale Media Festival, Berlin (2013); Nordic Music Days, Stockholm (2012); the Ultima Contemporary Music festival, Oslo (2011); and the Akademie der Künste, Berlin (2009)
