Marya Krogstad (b. S. Korea) is a San Francisco based multi-media artist working in installation/environments, sculpture, film, video, audio and performative works. Krogstad's room-sized environments and sculptural installations at times position the viewer as a participant or as the subject of the work. These works address concepts of transience and the encounter to create situations in which we may see ourselves and the spaces we occupy in new ways. The in-between dimensions, the oneiric, and notions relating to identity, help to inform the work. 

Krogstad received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2009, and exhibits nationally and internationally. She was awarded an affiliate artist studio at the Headlands Center for the Arts and will be an Artist in Residence at Kala Art Institute in 2014.  Krogstad is the recipient of the Increase Robinson Memorial Graduate Fellowship-R.W. and Joyce Witt Schlorship Award and was nominated for the SECA Award at SFMOMA.
