About the artist

b. 1974 in Antwerp, Belgium

Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium

Sophie Nys uses sculpture, photography, video, text and objects to examine precise philosophical, political, historical and artistic themes with a wry sense of humor. Often working from local stories or from the particularity of everyday objects, she addresses larger issues class and gender by asserting the social idiosyncrasy of common objects, products, materials and ideas.
