Stéphanie Lagarde (born in Toulouse, FR in 1982) is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Paris. Her works deal with strategies of occupation and the organization of space throughout systems of objects, languages and human beings, performed to maintain and challenge control over actual and virtual territories. Echoing ancient mnemonic techniques, Lagarde assembles conflictual narratives out of sound, image and text from real and virtual, old and new, historical and fictional sources.
Her works are shown internationally in venues such as Plato Ostrava, Czech Republic; Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany; Frei_raum Q21 MuseumsQuartier Vienna, Austria; Tallinn Art Hall, Estonia; Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen, Germany; Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne, Australia; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France.
Her videos have been showed in festivals such as IFFR (Rotterdam), BISFF (Beijing), Videonale (Bonn), Transmediale (Berlin), EMAF (Osnabrück), DOKLeipzig, Kasseler Dokfest, IFFF (Dortmund), November Festival (London). She won the International competition award of Short Waves 2019 (Poznan, Poland) and the 2019 Grand Prize at BIEFF Festival (Bucharest, Romania).
