Puppet Workshop with Sylvia Ziemann

About the artwork

About the Artist

Sylvia Ziemann works in sculpture, painting, drawing, and puppetry. Her work explores our growing fear of the domestic other, our neighbours, and the creeping anxiety that our cocoons might be breached from without or within. Some work looks into the future of living spaces and how individuals might respond to environmental challenges caused by climate change, pandemics and extreme conditions. Born in Edmonton she earned a diploma in painting from The Alberta College of Art and Design (1983), a BFA From Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1986) and MFA from the University of Regina (2015). She teaches Art at the University of Regina.
