STEPHANIE MISA born in Cebu City, Philippines, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna
in 2012 (Performative Arts and Sculpture -Monica Bonvicini).

She consistently displays an interest in complex and diverse histories and how this is represented and
expressed within culture, relating to these topics through her video work, installations, sculptures,
prints, and performance pieces— bringing forward aspects of historical authenticity, hybridity, and
embodiment, that expound on the immigrant experience.

and has recently concluded her Artist Residency Grant in Yogyakarta with the Federal Chancellery of
Austria (BKA). Her most recent projects include a commission for Wiener Festwochen 2017 (Night School),

Fünzigzwanzig (Salzburg) in July 2017 and Exhibition Laboratory in Helsinki FI in November 2018.
