SOFIA HULTÉN As a student of sculpture in England in the early 1990s Sofia Hultén was influenced by the idea of sculpture as an expandable medium with a great performative potential.
For Galeria Luisa Strina, Sofia has prepared a series of four works, including videos and sculptures. More interested in changing the state of existence of the ready-made material with which she works than necessarily creating new objects, Hultén incorporates time in her work as an intelligible element in videos, photographs and sculptures that capture the lifecycle of these objects. The important thing in her practice is not to arrive at the final destination – the art object – by means of the shortest path, but rather by a winding route through the labyrinth of possibilities, which for the artist is a process of unforeseeability.
