About the work:
More interested in materiality than image, in movement than resolution, Sofie focuses on creating colorful and chaotic sculptural installations that conflate the art and its space, resulting from an active and nonlinear process of accumulating, arranging, reusing and reworking layers of visual material. A core concern of the work and process resides in the shifting relationships determined by the juxtaposition of elements rather than in the identity of each or the overall object/space they compose.
In this body of work, she isolates and alters objects and symbols by taking away their function and offering alternative existences for them. By focusing on formal properties, she is able to divorce symbols from their context of meaning, put them in new contexts and accumulate them alongside other faceless or ambiguous forms. She levels out hierarchies by seeing all objects as surfaces on which to paint.
