Sophie Nys

Year and place of birth: 1974, Borgerhout, Belgium Location: Zurich, Switzerland and Brussels, Belgium

Sophie Nys’ oeuvre consists of photographs, videos, sculptures and drawings. Out of her interest in philosophy, (art) history and the fabric of society, Nys questions both the law of cause and effect and the tension between transience and continuity. In a playful and humorous way, she combines a minimal visual language with a conceptual working method. Time and time again, Nys departs from intuitive and associative research into specific contexts or personal experiences. By removing objects and images from their everyday context, transforming and thus redefining them, she not only reveals and undermines the underlying mechanisms of the art world, but also invites reflection.
