The photographic work of Sophie Thun (born in 1985 in Frankfurt am Main in Germany) resembles a stream of images of places and spaces in which the artist has worked and exhibited. She is always present in these images herself as the author of her analog photographs. Sometimes she looks confidently into the camera, the shutter release in her hand; at other times she is represented by her photographic equipment. Thun always uses her body as an instrument for questioning established forms of (female) representation. Using methods such as cutting, splitting and multiplying, she depicts identity as a process and as something changeable. Her impressive spatial installations play with our perception of reality and representation. This exhibition at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg is Thun’s first solo exhibition at a museum.
A publication will accompany the exhibition.
