Sophie Whettnall

conversation piece 1. 2005. video projection
16mm film on dvd. 3’33”

Belgian artist SOPHIE WHETTNALL works primarily in photography, video, performance, and site-specific installations, yet she is trained as a painter and much of her work takes up landscape, portraiture, and other themes traditionally associated with painting. Across these mediums, WHETTNALL’s art explores the relationship between the self and its surroundings in a dislocated world.

Her work is one of those exceptions of contemporary art that knows how to touch you deeply on first impressions, without making use of explicit, “taboo-breaking” subjects. The images filmed are far from spectacular but she knows how to capture THE moment, and to convey this to her audience.

Her website is full of videos, photos and even drawings, don’t miss it!
