Sophie Durand: looking for / stumbling across
30 March–9 April
Associate Gallery is located at Köllunarklettsvegur 4.
‘looking for / stumbling across’ is a collection of research, a gathering of gestures, a map of movement. Sophie Durand presents an installation of objects that hold within them a journey, using the gallery space to create a temporary place for the ideas she has accumulated.
“I think the exhibition is about the sea, but I think it is also about the sea, as a distance, a threshold.” – Joe Keys
Sophie Durand is a multi-disciplinary artist based between Perth, Australia and Vilnius, Lithuania whose practice engages installation, collection, drawing and text. Projects are catalysed by experiences, observations and artefacts. Encounters set narratives in motion and generate into larger investigations, collections and networks through a diverse range of methods. Currently Sophie is attempting to find forms of art that situate empathetically to coastal ecological systems, reconciling with a practice that’s built from mulling over memory and looking to find ways of recalibrating production and presentation to happen simultaneously to each other and the present.
Sophie has a BA (Hons 1st Class) in Fine Art from Curtin University and has completed the Masters in Contemporary Art Program at the Estonian Academy of Arts (with distinction). She is currently a Doctor of Art candidate at the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania.
