Stefanie Knobel grew up in Switzerland and first studied dance, language and choreography in Bern, Giessen and Paris before working in Fine Arts. Her work pursues a polyphonic breathing that catches up with the technogenic substances in our alienated bodies and brings forth future imaginaries that have yet to be woven. Textile and tactile intersect, allowing the past to resonate in the present. Her transdisciplinary works have been shown at FRAC Lorraine Metz, Kunsthalle Schaffhausen, Künstlerhaus Bremen, Gessnerallee Zurich among many others. In 2019, her work was awarded a prize in visual arts and performance by the Aargauer Kuratorium. Between 2017 and 2020, she was on residencies in Paris, Russia, India and Bangladesh. Since then, the Indian subcontinent has occupied an important place in her work.
