Sophie Whettnall is a multidisciplinary artist using video, performance, drawing and painting. Her works oscillate between elegance, sensuality and energy.

Since the nineties, the work of Sophie Whettnall offers a reflection on the forces that define our relationship to the world around us, by materialising and documenting them. Sophie Whettnall focuses on light and analyses its presence and zones of absence and passage. The aesthetic pieces of the artist prove simultaneously sensitive and powerful, resting on a dialectic tension and attempt to instigate a relation between contradicting concepts and perceptions: between softness and sensuousness, yin and yang, women and men…

Her work also contributes to a form of autobiographical project.

Sophie Whettnall’s work has been exhibited at the Centrale (Brussels), Utah Museum of Fine Arts (Salt Lake City), MAC’S, Site du Grand Hornu (Hornu), DOT. Project (London), Leal Rios Foundation (Barcelona), Centrale for Contemporary Art (Brussels), Palais des Beaux-Arts (Brussels), Museu de Arte Moderna Aloisio Magalhães (Recife), CGAC (Santiago de Compostella), COAC (Barcelona), Vera Cortes Art Agency (Lisbon), Krinzinger Projekte (Vienna), L’orangerie, espace d’art contemporain (Bastogne), Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains (Tourcoing).
