Glasgow International 2020

Sofie Alsbo

Sofie Alsbo (b. 1982 in Copenhagen, Denmark) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Alsbo uses sound, video and animation as tools to explore the pull between the internal and external space of body and mind. By directing the attention to the relationship between the human body and technology her work plays with understandings of consciousness, space and time. Working with imagery and sound from collected materials, mixed with personal recordings, she forms a flowing language of perception where familiarity and anticipation gets distorted and fragmented. 

Exhibitions include: Cacophony, MOU art, Beijing, China (2017); Surround Sound Artists Project, Art Basel Miami Beach, Florida, US (2015); RA Schools show, Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK (2015); Right hand gives, the left takes away, Extrapool, Nijmegen, Netherlands (2014); Spring Exhibition 2012, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark (2012); Future Map 10, 176 Zabludowicz Collection, London, UK (2011); Mary Mixtape Release, TTC Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark (2008); Young Artists Video (screening), Camden Art Centre, London, UK (2008).

For Cleave, six artists working across sound, sculpture, video, painting, photography and performance will install their artwork across three arches in a dynamic format that switches between minimal/maximal space and male/female artists.

The word ‘cleave’ means both to split and to adhere to – embodying acts of divergence, as well as convergence. Cleave begins as a concept split along natural lines of being that, when taken as a whole, establishes a common artistic expression linking the three arches into one coherent whole.

Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces.
