Der Schein der Dinge
28.7.2017 — 7.00 PM – 24.9.2017
Berlin-based artist Sophia Pompéry (*1984) is a keen observer. With a phenomenological vision onto the world she questions the deceptive appearance of things and opens up unusual perspectives on apparently well-known objects and conditions.
At studio space 45cbm she presents a set of works, that pay homage to the elusive moment, with a focus on the transition from one state of being to another. In a playful experimental set-up physical and optical regularities are being fathomed out, and philosophical questions concerning space, time and self are raised.
Sophia Pompéry studied at Kunsthochschule Weißensee, Berlin, and took part in Ólafur Elíasson's Institute for Spatial Experiments, Universität der Künste, Berlin.
