Sophie Nys

Extra Academy #51: Sophie Nys

The Belgian artist Sophie Nys (1974) brings together different media that examine, not rarely with a wry sense of humor, themes of history and social culture among others.

With minimal interference and reduced means, in her practice, objects and images from everyday life are transformed and repositioned. In doing so the artist poses questions about cause and effect, transience and continuity and opens up new spaces for reflection, narration and resistance.

Previous exhibitions include solo shows at Bozar, Galerie Greta Meert and La Loge in Brussels, Kiosk in Ghent, Crac Alsace in Altkirch, Circuit in Lausanne, and Projecte SD in Barcelona. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Helmhaus, Archiv, Haus Konstruktiv and Kunsthalle in Zürich, Kunsthalle Vienna, Venice Biennale, Artists Space New York, Maniera, Etablissement d’en Face and Wiels in Brussels.
