Stephanie Rizaj

Graduation year




Stephanie Rizaj’s (1989) artistic practice is as manifold as it is consistent. Trained as an architect, designer and artist, her work ranges from performative sculptures to site-specific installations and videos. It focuses on the sociopolitical construction of identities and reflects on the relations between the body, labour and architecture.

Traces (2020)
Single-channel video

Traces unfolds itself gradually, from the urban architecture of a district in Marseille to the sculptural landscapes of a territory marked by the sea, alternating an objective point of view with the intuitive mindset of children’s experiences and dreams.


As If Biting Iron (2019)
Two-channel video

“What if women could move a house?” As If Biting Iron challenges this very question by witnessing the walls of a brutalist building, situated in a forest, being moved by the forces of over one hundred anonymous women.
