SOFI ZEZMER is a Polish artist who currently exhibits a series of hybrid sculptures, photography and drawings at Mike Weiss Gallery in New York. She draws inspiration from biochemistry, quantum mechanics, space travel, and genetic stem cell research to create color-saturated, precision-made pieces which nevertheless suggest an organic fragility. For these half sculptures, half hybrid micro organisms, she uses common materials such as packing materials, construction netting, film, foil, bicycle elements , cable ties or funnels-

According to SOFI ZEZMER, her original intention was to shift the common definition of the objects we use to inform our everyday lives and confront the viewer with his or her own relationship to consumption, mass production and overflow. That’s why her recent creations are intended to work as interactive sites, inviting simultaneously accessible multiple viewpoints.

“Remote Control” is the third solo exhibition of SOFI ZEZMER at Mike Weiss Gallery and will run until 3 April, 2010
