Tereza Stehlíková is as an artist and works as a senior lecturer in still and moving image theory and practice, at University of Westminster, as well as a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art. She holds a PhD from the RCA, where she researched the tactile language of moving image. She is currently engaged in a cross-disciplinary research, investigating how moving image can be used to communicate embodied experience. In particular, Stehlíková focuses on use of food and performance to explore the fluid boundary between inside and outside, the subjective and the objective, and the role of sensory aesthetics and embodied memory in informing our emotional responses to her work. Stehlikova’s other ongoing project explores 4 Generations of women in her own family, over the past 8 years, through creation of small family rituals captured in moving image.
Stehlíková is also a founding member of Sensory Sites, an international collective based in London, generating collaborative exhibitions, installations and research projects that explore multi-sensory perception and bodily experience. Her work has been presented and published internationally in film festivals, symposia, exhibitions as well as various publications such as Vertigo magazine, Artesian and Go Together Press.
