Born and raised downtown Toronto, Vanessa Rieger graduated from OCADU in 2009 with a degree in Drawing and Painting. Combining her skills in fine art, wood working, set design, analog video and performance, this helped her develop a multidisciplinary art practice that gives her audience an immersed A/V experience. Some of her creative inspirations include haunted houses, sci-fi movies, practical special effects, VHS and cyber punk. Currently she works as a professional arts technician, gallery installer and Teacher’s Assistant for Integrated Media at OCADU.
Rieger currently lives and works between Toronto and Picton Ontario, where she has a woodshop and studio space.
Rieger is passionate about the arts community and studio practice. In 2009, she helped found the board of directors at White House Studio Project located in Kensington Market downtown Toronto and acted as Project Manager for 3 years. She sat on the Board of Directors for Whippersnapper gallery in 2012. In 2013 she founded/initiated the Artist Work Exchange Program at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island. Rieger was an active member of the Analog Preservation Network from 2013-14 and is currently in a collaborative arts project with Brandon A. Dalmer called “Videomancy” which specializes in live sculptural video projections.
