Look Who's Talking: Sophie Nys (NL)

Guided tour
Look Who's Talking
18 05 2022 19:00 20:00

Kasper Bosmans talks with Sophie Nys, an artist whose practice combines sculpture, drawing, photography and video and who – like Bosmans – explores with a playful sense of irony the fields of History, Philosophy and Architecture. During this conversation, the two artists will develop the poetic potential and the symbolic charge of everyday objects through a trans-historical approach to the materials that are at the source of their respective practices.
