Tereza Stehlíková works as an artist, filmmaker and a senior lecturer. She holds a PhD from the Royal College of Art, 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. Stehlikova is a research coordinator at the Royal College of Art, animation department (also supervising PhD students) and a senior lecturer in still and moving image theory and practice, at the University of Westminster. She is a founder of Sensory Sites, an international collective based in London, generating collaborative exhibitions, installations and research projects that explore multi-sensory perception and bodily experience.  She also co-founded Artesian, a journal for committed creativity, featuring the writings of John Berger, Don DeLillo amongst many others. Stehlikova has presented her research at a number of international conferences and her films and performances have been shown at a variety of film and music festivals around the world, such as last year’s Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival. She exhibited internationally, amongst these in London, Tokyo and Prague and most recently at Alchemy Film and Art Festival, in Hawick. Stehlikova just completed a large collaborative international art installation Blue Hour, which took place during Prague Quadrennial 2019 and is also developing a series of workshops focused on using our senses to create a more embodied understanding of abstract concepts, such as dark matter, with Dr Roberto Trotta (Astrophysics Department, Imperial College). She is also continuing her work on her long-term artist film project, 4 Generations of Women (capturing the complex relationships between four generations of women in her own family), as well as Worm Wood, documenting a disappearing part of North West London. Finally, she is also involved in a collaborative artist project exploring embodiment in film and performance.
