Munich-based artist Stefanie Unruh combines various techniques and methods such as drawing, drawing on video, photography, objects, and installation in her artistic works. Drawing serves as the point of departure for many of her works, which she has expanded to include installations and, since 2002, the medium of video. While her earlier work developed out of stringent conceptual methods, she now employs a variety of approaches and incorporates narrative aspects and associative spaces. Her projects, some of which she develops over periods of several years, are based on extensive research on site, on the Internet, and in print media. She works with the traces and memories of places, with political events, as well as with everyday situations and her own sensibilities. Her examination of daily life and its specific myths emerges out her self-image as an individual living in a society that is also deeply shaped by time- and media-based phenomena. Stefanie Unruh analyzes everyday realities and employs artistic means to reflect on social realities, which she at times distorts and transforms into surreal worlds. A subtle irony runs consistently throughout her work.
