Description

The first complete monograph on the Austrian artist.

Since her diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, in 2005, Sofia Goscinski’s diverse practice has encompassed sculpture, photography, video, performance, drawing and painting. Her work borrows from the aesthetics of Minimalism, to be provokingly juxtaposed with expressive elements. There is an intuitive and consistent manner to Goscinski’s work in creating new dialogues and contact with surfaces of material. The formal and conceptual rigor at the root of Sofia Goscinski’s approach is tempered by unrestricted freedom, producing works that can be interpreted and experienced on very different levels. Incredibly wide-ranging, her work remains dedicated to challenging the viewer’s self-awareness by means of physically altering their perceptions. The socio-political content is evident and central to her oeuvre.
