SOFÍA DURRIEU

 

Sofía Durrieu’s practice inhabits the interface between sculpture and performance. She examines the human body and the inherent tension between body and environment. Hereby, she explores daily routines, their interruption, and the resulting changes in perception. Her practice involves classical techniques of sculpture such as metal work and casting, as well as reorganization of everyday materials, which she inscribes with perceptual systems, habits, and automatisms. In many of her works, she invites visitors to engage physically with her sculptures and thus become part of the work.

Sofía Durrieu (*1980 Buenos Aires, Argentina, lives in Basel, Switzerland and Buenos Aires, Argentina) studied Fine Arts at Prilidiano Pueyrredón, Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires, and Graphic Design at the Faculty of Design of Buenos Aires. In 2018 she moved to Basel, Switzerland to join the Master in Fine Arts program at FHNW HGK Institut Kunst, directed by Chus Martínez, graduating in 2020. Recent solo exhibitions of the artist were Protolito/Limen at Ruth Benzacar, Buenos Aires, Magenmund at Palazzina, Basel, Amenities at Reaktor, Zurich, Control Remoto at Pasto Galería, Buenos Aires. Her work has been included in several group exhibitions, among them at Kunsthalle Basel, MALBA, Buenos Aires, Kunsthaus Baselland, Basel, CEAAC Strasbourg, Federico Klemm Foundation, Buenos Aires, and Livie Gallery, Zurich. Her work was part of the performance series “Friday Beyeler” at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen, and of the Performance Biennial in Parque Memorial in Buenos Aires in 2022. Recently she has been awarded with the 2022 Swiss Art Awards, the Werkbeitrag Kunstkredit Basel Stadt 2021, as well as an Atelier Mondial residency in Tokas, Tokyo. A solo exhibition at Kunstverein Heppenheim and a performance at Kunstmuseum Basel are planned for 2024.
