Stefan Tcherepnin

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 4 November 2020 – 30 June 2021

1977, Boston, USA. Lives and works in Kingston, New York, USA.

Stefan Tcherepnin is a mixed media artist, composer and musician.  His work often takes the form of immersive, meta-narrative installations that integrate painting, sculpture, video and found objects. Tcherepnin’s approach is inherently collaborative and he frequently unites with other artists, musicians and writers to create environments in which spontaneous actions and performances may unfold.

Alongside his visual art practice, Tcherepnin is a composer and performer of avant-garde music. His critically acclaimed recording of visionary composer Maryanne Amacher’s Petra for Two Pianos (alongside pianist Marianne Schroeder) was released by Blank Forms Editions in 2019, as was his band Afuma’s debut album, Songs From the Shore. His duo PSST (with drummer Paul Sigerhall) also released a cassette, Real Gospel, on Stockholm imprint STYX/PTROLEUM in 2019.

During his residence at IASPIS, Stefan intends to produce a mutating immersive installation, connecting with other creative individuals interested in unlocking, activating and channeling transformative energies through found and produced objects. He plans to document the creative process and present the resultant emergent narrative structure as a video and in performances (musical and otherwise) with and by participating individuals.
