Stepanka Cervinkova is an Eastern-European immigrant living in Melbourne. She was a founding member of STEASH, a film project of like-minded artists, who decided to kick the patriarchy in the ass by promoting diversity and gender equality both on and off screen.
Open to viewers' interpretation, her artwork is infused with irony and sense of mystery. Stepanka is utilizing strong audiovisual symbols and delicate compositions in a subversive manner. She is interested in exploring paradoxes of human conditions. Her work feels menacing and empowering at the same time.
