Stephanie Cardon's work concerns itself with forms of archive such as photographs and the written word. She is interested in their capacity for creating biased and incomplete records. Her pieces seem to be about place, but often the space described is entirely fictional, strongly re(mis-)interpreted or used to represent something it isn't.
French-American artist Stephanie Cardon was born in 1978 in New York City. Her work has been shown internationally at the Galerie Michèle Chomette, Paris and recently at the Arles Photography Festival; Sotheby's Conduit Street Gallery and Hoopers Gallery, London; and in the USA at the International Center of Photography and An American Space Gallery in New York City; Jane Deering Gallery, Samsøn Projects, Kingston Gallery, Atlantic Works, Mount Ida College and The Massachusetts College of Art, MA, among others.
