Isabella Streffen works on perception, dazzlement, the encounter and the slippery territories of flirtation. In pursuit of these ends she has illuminated Hadrian’s Wall from end-to-end, staged a dogfight with prototype drones Hawk & Dove in the Library of Congress, camouflaged tourists in Monet’s Garden, chased vampires in the Palais Garnier, followed Sophie Calle to Venice in a blonde wig, looked at the world through the lens of a cow, performed in cabaret en unicorne, transformed apples into gold for the most deserving, taxonomized her desires and conducted a love affair with a bot. She received her PhD from Newcastle University in 2012, and currently convenes the MA Fine Art at De Montfort University. Fabulae: How It Begins, her book on mythography, will be published in 2022.
