Sophie Whettnall

April 17 – May 26, 2018


Sophie Whettnall, born in 1973 in Brussels, Belgium. Lives and works in Brussels

Since the 1990’s Whettnall work has been a reflection on the forces that define our relation with world around us, materializing and documenting them. Sophie Whettnall focuses on light, and documents it in her work, but has also eye for its absence, i.e, the zones in which its passage.

One of the main themes of Sophie Whettnall’s work rest on a dialectic tension and resolution between contradictory concepts and perceptions : between softness and sensuality and a rawer and more rugged even violent aspect (in both gestures and materials), between yin and yang, let’s be frank, between femininity and masculinity, the work often contributes to the background, and by it’s own admission, to a form of autobiographical unveiling.

The landscape – a more than traditional subject – remains one of the constantly recurring themes in the work of Sophie Whettnall via diverse meanderings.
