Sophia Marguerite Boeschoten
Sophia (Utrecht 1984) lives and works in The Hague. As a child she believed to be from another world and practised her own religion. The landscapes of this parallel world are still the main inspiration for her artistry. With her installations she wants to give the viewer an insight in his/her own parallel world. She uses different media, i.a. painting, video, music, poetry and performance. The different elements of the installations also function as autonomous art works. Since graduating at the Royal Academy of The Hague in 2016 Sophia has exhibited in different galleries, i.a. Hoop Expo (2019) and De Aanschouw (2019) en Galerie Frank Taal (2020). In 2020 she takes part in different international artist-in-residencies to focus on her conceptual research.
