Sylvia Matas is an artist living on Treaty One Territory in Winnipeg. Her practice combines images and language resulting in videos, books, texts, and drawings. She received her MFA from the Chelsea College of Art in London, England.

Recent videos were made with found photographs from the internet including sources like surveillance cameras, satellite photos, and online archives. She is interested in questioning habitual ways of seeing and the ways in which technology can alter how we perceive reality. Her work has been exhibited at Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Gallery 44, YYZ Artists’ Outlet, Mercer Union (Toronto), The Maclaren Art Centre (Barrie, ON), The Winnipeg Art Gallery, Plug In ICA, School of Art Gallery (Winnipeg), Truck Contemporary Art (Calgary), and the Art Gallery of Regina.
