SOPHIA SOBERS is an interdisciplinary artist specializing in installations and site specific work. She
creates soft sculptures and ambient sounds and is interested in investigating the boundaries
between science, technology, and nature.
My work is an exploration of personal and communal identity. My perspective is informed by
Jewish folklore and mythology, approached from a feminist angle. I explore female and gender
non-conforming bodies, as well as taboo.
I make sculptures and document the process of my object making, which involves industrial
machinery and welding; this practice is in resistance to our being defined and
harvested as dividual consumers of mass-produced symbols.
I accumulate discarded objects and nontraditional materials, transforming them through painstaking methods into sculptures and installations. Both material and process are significant to the content of my work.
