Kiera Faber is an artist working with materiality and texture through the mediums of animated experimental film, analogue photography, drawing, and textiles. Her auteur, award winning films are entirely crafted by hand. She creates visually complex and richly evocative surreal worlds where themes of loss and trauma are explored through enigmatic abstract narratives. Each film involves extensive drawing, sculpture, and painting for sets, puppet stop motion animations, and other forms of frame-by-frame animation.

Faber's work is internationally screened and exhibited at film festivals, galleries, and museums, most notably the South Bend Museum of Art, DeVos Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Photography, George Eastman Museum, and the Walker Art Center. She received her MFA from the Visual Studies Workshop after completing a BA in Psychology from the University of Rochester. In 2018, Faber received a McKnight Fellowship in Media Arts. She has received numerous regional grants and two film production grants from the Jerome Foundation (2013, 2019).

Faber's current stop-motion animated film, THE GARDEN SEES FIRE, will screen on the film festival circuit soon.

Faber is also working on two collaborative projects with Estonian/British poet Philip Gross and media artist Jes Reyes.

Faber is a Luxembourger/American.
