VAN DER PUTTEN
Sophia creates artistic works grounded in the body, that deal with themes like feminity, sexuality, and power which she approaches from an absurdist perspective. A returning thread in her work is the tension between the ‘social’ body as public and historic cultural playing-field, and the ‘personal’ body as the most private and intimate element in our lives.
In her movement language she searches for ways to alienate and transform the body through the distortion of physical borders. Sophia makes these confronting themes physically tangible and feasible through her comic touch.
