Floria Sigismondi

About This Project


Born in Italy to opera singer parents & raised in Canada, Floria Sigismondi’s multi-disciplinary work encompasses film, video, photography and installations.

Her images exist in a theatrical setting that is both narrative and starkly visual, revealing the poetic and sometimes macabre world. Floria explores the effects of science on our contemporary experience of the body and describes an undefined possibility for the future.

In 2010, Floria wrote and directed her first feature film The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning. Her music video credit list is extensive with artists such as Katy Perry, The White Stripes, David Bowie, Fiona Apple, The Cure, Leonard Cohen, Sigur Ros, Marilyn Manson, Justin Timberlake, Bjork and Rihanna among many others.
