Åsa Stjerna (b.1970) was educated at University of Arts, Crafts and Design and The Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm, together with further studies in musicology and philosophy at Stockholm University, and at the Institute for Electro-Acoustic Music in Sweden (EMS). She has participated in a number of exhibitions both in Sweden and internationally and has also written extensively on sound art, regularly contributing to the Swedish contemporary music journal Nutida Musik. Åsa Stjerna’s works are mainly concerned with the experience of time and place, closely associating notions of nature in relation to the urban environment. She is working with location-specific explorations of a range of phenomena through sound. Her multi-channel sound installations reinforce and amplify a sense of place, invoking social and historical associations, whilst revealing a linear as well as three-dimensional spaciality.
