Stephanie Deumer is a Canadian visual artist, whose multi-media installations highlight interrelations between different kinds of reproduction—including biological, visual, mechanical, and social. More particularly, the exploration of feminine constructs is a crucial through-line in Deumer’s practice. Complexities of female identity formation figure prominently, specifically in relation to language, media, science, and technology. Deumer holds a BA from the University of Guelph in Canada and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts. She was a fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York from 2018-2019, and has been awarded grants from the California Arts Council, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Prospect Art, Canada Council for the Arts, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and Bar-Fund LA. Her work has been shown internationally in Canada, the United States, the UK, Ecuador, and Saudi Arabia.
In 2022, she participated in Desert X Al’Ula in Saudi Arabia, creating a large-scale solar-powered video installation that cultivated native plants. As part of her continued exploration of simulacra and immersive environments, the work brought to life the spectacle of biological reproduction through technological and visual means.
